Information About David John - Hornchurch teacher
This is how 2 referees rated David John:
My names David John . I'm a fine artist from Hornchurch in Essex. I'm currently studying for my Masters in fine art at Goldsmiths College, University of London. I specialise in figurative painting where I am developing my theories of Critical Realism in Fine Art. That is to be critical of the reality around us, an artistic account of the world we live in. looking to socio-historical concerns and presenting them in a surreal nature creating layers of cryptic and symbolic meaning. Drawing is a part of this process as is photography and creative writing… but the main objection of these principals is to fundamentally create art.
I am a former member of the Stuckist Movement - Now a movement noted in the History of Art Books - which I am expanding with my theories of Critical Realism. I have exhibited in London many times, short-listed for the John Moores painting Competition 2006, Shown in the Liverpool Bennal 2004.
I look forward to hearing from you. :)
I work in Havering Sixth Form College as a Student Liaison Officer. This is a role where I help students out in all areas, running the College Council and running two events classes I have created. I also work teaching in the Foundation work room from time to time, I have also been artist in Residence for Havering College - 2004.
My approach to teaching is conversational, lecturing and problem solving. I agree with the great artist Patrick Heron; "You can't teach art, but you can help get it out of them", you can guide, advise, help, be critical and supportive.
