David Fitzpatrick

David was born on the West Coast of Tasmania in Queenstown in 1958 and returned in 2015 from travelling Australia with his unique spiritual pastel drawings.

David began working with using stains and objects found in and around Queenstown to produce his ‘Moon Vases’, incorporating the residue from the copper producing process (slag) metals and local clay. David’s large scarred, raw and intense panels show a truth in landscape and depict a ‘real’ view of his home town and its surrounds—'A West Coaster's point of view'. Revealed in these large works is a mysterious, unique beauty and resilience only an artist born into it could portray.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
