David Weir, recently relocated to Australia after many years living and exhibiting in New Zealand where he is still represented by Orexart. David is originally from Melbourne, however prior to his New Zealand move he spent ten years living in the East Alligator River region of Kakadu. Living with and learning from Bill Neidjie, one of the most senior and respected Aboriginal elders of the Kakadu, had a profound affect on David and the legacy of this experience still lingers in his work today.

Now represented in Australia by the Janet Clayton Gallery in Sydney, David's recent work has moved away from the earth tones and taken a rhythmic linear turn. A little representative of Ian Fairweather who was also profoundly affected by his Darwin experiences.
