David Surman

David Surman uses figurative forms in his art that he executes in a seemingly easy and immediate manner. In recent years, he has become increasingly interested in the projection of the human experience onto the natural world via elements of pathetic and cartooned fallacies that imbue his figures with both sincerity and irony, liveliness and psychology. Through his work, Surman also calls into question the hierarchies of taste and value that structure both our ideas about art and the natural world. With both humor and tenderness, he offers a delightful reaction to the precarious condition of our radically changing planet.
