David Fairbairn – Drawn Together

Exhibition and Shows

19 Jan 2022 to 6 Mar 2022 Once Only Event

This exhibition could imply two people who are drawn together by circumstance, two unrelated people in the same drawing, two friends, or a couple in a long-term relationship.

‘Drawn Together’ explores the relationship between one or two sitters and the artist. Some of the earlier subjects were of men and women from David’s local community who were invited to pose. However, with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, David was unable to work with his regular sitters. Therefore, his partner the artist Suzanne Archer offered to sit for him, which resulted in a new and extensive body of work.

The series began with individual portraits of Suzanne (Intimacy) and evolved into Double Lives which included both Suzanne and David. It is this body of work that has become the focus of this exhibition.

The resulting series reflects a long and sustained personal and artistic relationship extending back more than three decades.
