For David Hawley, the process of making art, particularly in relation to abstract painting, continues to be an ongoing source of investigation and experimentation.
In Remote Control the somewhat archaic analogue photocopier provides exciting possibilities for invention. David plays with the unexpected outcomes of this device in this new series of paintings and screen-prints, using processes such as paper jams, random enlargements, moving images during copying and other ‘interferences’ or ‘happenings’ to produce surprising visual effects. For David “the input of machines and the specific qualities they add to process and object questions accepted notions of authenticity and authorship.”

Secret, un-noticed little places abound in and around buildings - waiting to be discovered. The outside world of everyday city street activity beckons to be newly experienced. This exhibition/installation represents an exploration of possibilities inherent in a concentrated study of a particular place.
