2016 Finalists

David HEMPENSTALL

Artist statement: I am desperate to make my pictures free from the need for balance, accountability or weight of evidence. I want them to be my creation of prejudice, personal history, intent and physical undertaking. I want to be self indulgent. I want to record, to, as Friedlander described, ‘get the tree and the forest all at once’. I have been driven by the formal aspects of arrangement and view to pursue an ever widening line of enquiry; to continue to be surprised by what the camera reveals and removes.
