In the early 1990s David Shilling started painting all-white canvasses in his studios in London's Marylebone High StreetCanvas

CanvasDavid uses traditional canvas on wooden stretchers, painting only with white to capture subtle changes of colour, light and movements. He calls these 'paintings' but many people class them as sculpture.

He had his first one-man show of these with Robert DeMarco in Edinburgh in 1992. An almost sell-out exhibition in the Stockholm branch of Sotheby's ensued, was followed by his solo show at the Salama-Caro Gallery in London's Cork Street. These 'paintings' are represented in international public and private collections including the British Government Arts Collection.
