David Peduzzi

7- 23 December

In his drawings, David describes the light and open space of his favourite landscapes. These, and his woodblock prints of birds, have a strong sense of movement, derived from observation and a delight in the play of energetic lines on paper.

Subjects are the skies of the South Downs, wild Scottish coasts, small boats, and birds in flight. He uses traditional media to explore these in a contemporary way, in colour and black and white.

David studied at Hornsey and Bath Academy of Art, graduating in 1979. He worked as an illustrator, graphic designer and manager in publishing before devoting all his time to developing as a printmaker.

He lives and works close to the South Downs, and teaches drawing and wood engraving. He has exhibited with the Society of Wood Engravers, at PrintFest and at three recent Royal Academy Summer shows.
