David ManleyArtist, Curator, Writer, Lecturer / academic
I am an artist, writer and curator with over thirty years experience of contemporary art production, curation and writing. My practice and research falls into two distinct though interrelated activities - original artworks and commentaries on contemporary work. My current work is based on studies of geometry and nature entitled 'Winter Cycle' inspired by the poetry of Reg Keeling and will be shown in 2016. Autumn 2015 will see work from another series drawing upon Geometry featured in a group exhibition I am organising at Deda, Derby entitled 'Geometry: Wonky & Otherwise'.
