David Reekie has a long and prestigious history as an artist specialising in glass, beginning as a student in 1967 at the Stourbridge College of Art, he has gone on to lecture and exhibit at the RCA and the V&A London, and also colleges and galleries in the States, Australia, Hong Kong and throughout Europe. David has developed his own lost wax casting technique to produce unique pieces that encompass symbolism and social comment as well as touches of wit and irony.
‘My work is influenced by man’s reaction and adaptation to the society in which he lives. We live in a world that grows more complex and difficult to comprehend, with its tensions and temptations that pulls us in different directions. These conflicts provide ideas from which I create characters and situations and provide me with a constant source of material for my work. I devise surreal settings showing how we try to cope with the very limited and purely imagined space that we have created for ourselves.’
