David J. Folley B.A. – Born England 1960
This latest collection of paintings combines two of Folley’s loves: the patinations of Dartmoor and the experimentation of manipulating paint upon the canvas. On one Level he is essentially an “English” Painter, although closer inspection reveals facets of other influences drawn from a wide spectrum of Art History. David’s paintings are in response to his desire to continue painting different styles including figurative, landscape and abstract works.
Folley further studied at Middlesex University were he was reading a taught MA in Aesthetic Theory. His oeuvre is subsequently heavily indebted with his training in Philosophy, Theology and Fine Art.
Recently Folley has completed portrait commissions for Trinity College, Cambridge, and University College Plymouth. Other major commissions include: Plymouth City Council and Endemol UK (a production company for Channel 4).
Folley’s work is represented in private, corporate and Institutional collections.
