David Aston Artist Bio:
David Aston (b. 1975) is a British artist based in London. David works in series and creates experimental and conceptual works in photography, mixed media and sculpture. David has studied the art market for over 30 years and playfully experiments with this knowledge of art history, early photographic processes and the contemporary art market to explore themes of context, value and ownership. David works on a number of series in parallel over many years, allowing themes and ideas to synthesize and cross-pollinate. In the Pinhole Muse series David combines an experimental and painterly treatment of light and art historical references to create works that blur the lines between photography and classical painting. Other series are more conceptual. In the Unidentified Living Object (ULO) series David explores the loss of identify and context resulting from the commoditisation and trading of antique photographs. In the Property of the artist series he questions how the terms we accept in order to participate with online technology impacts our ownership and copyright over our images, ideas and data. David's work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, East London International Photography Festival, short listed for the National Open Art Prize and featured in Surreal Photography and Artist of the day on Saatchi Art.
