David Ogle

We are collaborating with artist David Ogle on his current Arts Council England Developing Your Creative Practice funded project investigating collaborative methodologies within his practice. Working with sound & film artist Daniel Hopkins, we will be curating a pilot exhibition of new collaborative works in 2023.

Artist Statement

David Ogle’s practice seeks a mode of fragility, frequently revealing strong geometric forms within a space, lacking the weight and immobility of sculpture. Like the dimensionless properties of line on a flat surface, they exist in space without mass or structure. Working in this way, his practice routinely employs a material that surpasses such physical restraints; light. Incorporating drawing, sculpture, installation and new media, David Ogle often works in the ‘grey area’ between different mediums. Recurring visual motifs often surface across this disparate array of disciplines. In disrupting our expectations of these boundaries, his work produces paradoxical elements that are always combined with simplicity and material presence, continually providing a physical, and often illusionary, confrontation in real-space.



David Ogle lives and works in Liverpool, UK. Ogle studied at Lancaster University (BA, MA by Research) and the University of Liverpool (PhD). A lecturer in Fine Art at Liverpool Hope University (UK), Ogle has exhibited internationally and has works in public and private collections. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘The Last Light’ (Atkinson Museum, Southport – 2019); ‘Land/Lines’ (HOME, Manchester – 2018); ‘Light Traces’ (Broadgate, London 2017) and Subterranean (The Royal British Society of Sculptors – Sculpture Shock, London).
