About David Mayer

David Mayer`s sculpture has its roots in his childhood, which he spent in rural north Staffordshire close to the moorlands of the Peak District National Park. Walking, climbing and simply being in one of the UK`s most evocative landscapes left a lasting impression. Later, whilst working in this environment, his appreciation deepened with the opportunity to study wildlife and experience nature`s changing seasons and infinite moods.

He draws on these experiences and his innate respect for and love of wild animals and the world`s wildernesses. He says, `Being outdoors and observing wildlife in its natural habitat inspires me as an artist and as a human being.`

His aim is to use the textures of clay to record the fleeting moments that reflect the essence of wild creatures and their relationships with their landscapes. Quite simply, his works offer a glimpse of the wilderness.

Biography / CV of David Mayer

David Mayer was born in Staffordshire in 1964 and studied art a Leek Art College. His early career was spent as a survey assistant with the British Deer Society where he monitored the population numbers, behaviour and movements of Fallow deer in north Staffordshire.

David Mayer`s training and background mean he is able to work in many media and explore diverse subjects. However, his lifelong passion for sculpture and wildlife draw him instinctively to sculpting the animal form.

Each piece is the result of field observation ans starts with sketches before being transposed to clay. David`s experience means he understands the importance of anatomical precision to the finished piece and he takes great care in the early stages of the sculpting process to ensure that every detail of movement and gesture is rendered accurately. Such attention during these stages allows him to explore textures, finishes and moods in the later stages of the piece, giving each one a unique and distinctive identity.

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. "
Jacques Lipchitz
