During a residency at the University of South Australia in Adelaide in 2009, David worked on a series of abstracted figures based on the character of Ned Kelly an outlaw in 1880’s Australia who had a legend built around him. This legend was further added to by the images of his exploits created in the paintings of artist Sidney Nolan in the 1940’s. In this series of work, Another Kind of Dignity, David has used elements of Nolan’s paintings to explore the character of someone, who through prejudice and miscarriage of justice was led into a life of crime and violence.
