Dave is an artist, researcher, and educator from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. He moved to Montreal in 2016 for an MFA in painting and drawing, during which he produced a body of landscape paintings that compared the national mythologies from the 2012 London Olympic Opening ceremonies to Brexit’s 2016 « Leave » campaign. His other work has looked at the changing aesthetics of the home interior and built environments and the stadium as a simulacrum of landscape. He is currently a Ph.D. student in Concordia’s Art Education department and FFAR 250 tutorial leader.
