David Lock


David Lock was born in Leicester in 1970, and currently lives and works in London. He graduated from Goldsmiths’ College, London with an MA in Fine Art in 2001, following a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from The University of Reading in 1999. He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally. Following a solo show at Fred, London, Lock had a solo show at Zoo Art Fair, London, as a Prizewinner for the John Jones ‘Art on Paper’ acquisition award.

Through his Misfit paintings, Lock is investigating how to create a multitude of subject positions, upon which signifiers are free to float, shifting identification from one fragment to another. A sense of the uncanny is evoked by the paintings being composed from collaged elements.

Lock was a recipient of the prestigious Abbey Award, at the British School at Rome between October 2011-June 2012.
