David Milne paints a powerful universal commentary of the current global human condition. Milne utilises the early symbology of 17th century alchemy, as methods of understanding our contemporary planet. With this entirely unique abstract symbolism, Milne has devised a new language by which to communicate through his art.

Hundreds of hours are poured into each of his paintings, from their conceptual research and preparation, to the painstaking execution of detail, technique and skill. The layers of acrylic paint, glazes, fine architectural pen-work, and the countless processes of sanding, working, and re-working of his canvases, form exquisitely rich paintings like hand-crafted fabrics. David Milne’s paintings are as aesthetically bold with textures, depth and colour, as they are conceptually complex.

David Milne’s paintings speak definitively of today, and present the questions of tomorrow. In all that, his paintings carry with them the theme of the ancient alchemists.
