David Ogle graduated form Lancaster University with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art History/Practice (1st Class) in 2009 and a faculty funded MA in Contemporary Arts Research (Distinction) in 2012. He is currently undertaking an AHRC funded collaborative doctoral research project between Liverpool University’s Centre for Architecture and the Visual Arts (CAVA) and FACT (Foundation for Arts and Creative Technology).
This research questions the means by which value is attributed to the experience of creative practices and the increasing influence of technologies upon the arena in which these experiences occur. Central to this study is the theme of distance and the significance that the undertaking of a journey lends to our appreciation and personal understanding of the art object. Within this, the concept of authenticity is a key consideration, examining the non-localised nature of modern electronic media and its impact upon the perceived legitimacy of our experiences.
David is also a practising artist and winner of The Royal British Society of Sculptors ‘Sculpture Shock’ award (2013), winner of the ‘Peoples Choice’ award at both ‘The Title Art Prize’ and ‘The Neo Art Prize’ and shortlisted for ‘The Catlin Art Prize’ (2013). He has exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions and published works/writing in a range of arts publications.
