Beelden afkomstig van internet vormen vaak de basis van het werk van David Haines, die in zijn werk actief zijn eigen positie als kunstenaar als iemand die picturale en tekstuele verhalen maakt in de nasleep van abstractie, conceptuele kunst en fotografie, onderzoekt, en voor wie de verkenning van digitale identiteiten, online communities, hedendaagse mythen en de indexische aard van tekenen zelf belangrijke thema’s zijn. Haines is zich bewust van de status van het arbeidsintensieve medium van de potloodtekening in het digitale tijdperk, waarvan de meeslepende resultaten 'langzaam kijken' vereisen, zijn werk bevind zich in de vaak over het hoofd geziene ruimte tussen kijken en interpreteren. In zijn video's onderzoekt de kunstenaar dezelfde onderwerpen als in zijn tekeningen, zoals massamedia, adolescentie, wreedheid en homo-erotica. Net als zijn tekeningen is ook zijn videowerk vaak gebaseerd op gevonden materiaal van YouTube of dat afkomstig is uit krantenartikelen. David Haines (1969, Verenigd Koninkrijk) is een Britse kunstenaar die in Amsterdam woont en werkt. Hij studeerde aan de Camberwell School of Art in Londen en aan de Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. Zijn werk is tentoongesteld op plaatsen zoals het Stedelijk Museum, De Appel en de New Art Space (NASA) in Amsterdam. In het VK werd zijn werk getoond in The Turner Contemporary, MIMA, Fruitmarket Gallery Edinburgh en de Bluecoat in Liverpool. In 2011 exposeerde hij als onderdeel van de 12e Biënnale van Istanbul. Haines heeft vier solotentoonstellingen gehad in Upstream Gallery. De meest recente was A Fragile Membrane, An Illusive Screen, een tentoonstelling van nieuw werk op papier, muurtekeningen en tweekanaals video.

Over de kunstenaar

Jury Statement for the Refresh Irinox Prize
“David’s work stands out at speaking to issues at the forefront of drawing today. The way in which he uses the medium to play with representation, both in terms of the hand made and the digital, as well as his deep investment in art historical references, is exemplary within a proliferation of work in this area. His work gives poignant testament to our contemporary condition in which our desire for intimacy and human contact is filtered through the solitude of the screen”

NRC Handelsblad about 'A fragile membrane, an illusive screen'
"Het werk van de Brits-Nederlandse kunstenaar David Haines (1969) is op twee niveaus te waarderen. Technisch zijn zijn tekeningen interessant voor wie van fotorealisme houdt, van handgemaakt beeld dat haast niet van foto’s te onderscheiden is. […] Inhoudelijk wil Haines iets meedelen over hoe homoseksuele mannen zich presenteren, online en in het echt."
