David Skillicorn

Skillicorn began his career as a documentary filmmaker and is a self-taught artist.

His process is one of applying paint liberally, carving and digging back into it, and building up layers.

He allows his intuition to be the primary driving force, although he makes hundreds of decisions as the work emerges.

Through the process of application and excavation Skillicorn “finds” the painting as much as “makes” it.

He strives for his work to convey something that is not so much experienced with the mind, as felt with the body…. in an intimate, visceral, and contemplative way.
