Editions SSA is delighted – and honoured – to welcome renowned painter David Paul Gleeson onto our growing roster of esteemed artists and image creators. David’s work encompasses enigmatic portraiture, landscapes, architectural painting and intimate, quietly joyous still lifes. Since his initial public outings in the mid-1980s, he has exhibited in group and solo shows around the world, winning favour and prestigious awards in many international events. He has shown at The National Portrait and Mall Galleries in London, and his works are to be regularly seen at The Royal Academy’s annual Summer Exhibitions.
“In my work I try to look again at the everyday. There is a bit of mystery, alchemy even, in the craft of painting. All of my work conjures up a world that is barely glimpsed and often overlooked. The transience of everyday existence is caught and held up for scrutiny. The ordinary is thus transformed, and the onlooker is invited to pause and consider how the commonplace is strangely – and at times achingly – beautiful. It’s the magic of the quotidian.”

Gleeson’s association with Editions SSA signals his first foray into limited-edition, fine art prints – and we are currently collaborating with the artist on the transposition of a selection of his superb still life paintings into beautiful, affordable prints for the home and workplace. We’ll let you know when they’re available!
