I have an imaginative fascination with the preciousness of porcelain and richly decorated objects.
David Marques works with large one-off porcelain wall installations created for specific location.
He has created five large wall installations for the Portuguese porcelain manufacturer, Vista Alegre Atlantis’ flagship stores in Lisbon and Porto. The work has also been showcased at the trade fairs, Maison & Objet in Paris and Ambiente in Frankfurt and the brand’s showroom in New York.
At the moment David is working on a commission for a large wall installation for Cancer Research UK. This will be displayed at the Oncology Clinic at Charing Cross Hospital.
His work always shows his imaginative fascination with the preciousness of porcelain. It is easy to see that he thrives on richly decorated objects. He always plays with forms and patterns from the past, which he weaves into new contexts.
Often his work has an almost ‘baroque’ quality to it.
