New paintings of David Urban are meditations on mortality and ephemerality expressed though a reduced colour vocabulary. In subtle variations of rhythm and form, each painting engages the next in philosophical thought. 

The works play with perception, creating a multiplicity of vantage points and pathways. Between abstraction and representation, David Urban delves into the metaphysical, taking another step in an endless investigation into why we see.
