About Me
David Eastwood is an artist and academic whose practice is primarily situated in drawing and painting. He uses the interior as a genre through which to construct composite images that reconfigure spatio-temporalities, reevaluating relationships across historical periods and locations. His recent research examines the “afterlife” of artists’ studios recontextualised as posthumous museum artefacts, revising our understanding of the modernist studio and its relationship to contemporary art practice. In 2018 he completed a PhD on this topic. He is represented by Robin Gibson Gallery in Sydney and is a Lecturer at UNSW Art & Design. He has examined PhD candidates at ANU and Curtin; Masters candidates at USyd, UniSA, NAS and UNSW; and Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design (Honours) at ACU.
