About Us

An exhibition by David Jewkes acknowledging that life is a game of chances.

The exhibition represents all that the artist loves about life and painting and a reflection of his interesting life. He often paints carousels because he sees life as one big merry-go-round. Over the years, anti-war themes have been replaced by softer subjects such as fairgrounds, although they still acknowledge the theme that life is a game of chances.

Aged 19 and a senior aircraftsman with the Royal Air Force, David was sent to the Falkland Islands to repair the damage inflicted by the 1982 conflict. He promised himself that if he survived his six-month tour of duty in the south Atlantic he would go to art school.

On returning from the Falklands he gained a place at Winchester School of Fine Art where he achieved a 2.1 BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Painting). Then followed a scholarship at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art in London, whereupon he was asked by renowned Scottish war artist, Peter Howson, to be his studio assistant. David now lives quietly in Haslington, with his wife Louise and their children.

The paintings are available for sale.
