David Batty  cv
David Batty's exhibition, collectively entitled " I didn't know that I knew" displays a series of works which focus on the pursuit of truth and balance. The collection has taken Batty three years to complete and reflects his own sense of dedication and creative development throughout that time. Batty comments, "Whilst creating "I Didn't Know that I Knew" I uncovered many lies, lies I once believed to be the truth! The problem with beliefs, is, we believe them to be true! It can be "hard work", to ask ourselves why we believe or disbelieve what we do or don't." Adding, "I've no intention of asking you to believe or disbelieve anything. Please view my work and think about what you think you see…This work is aimed at helping us to question our beliefs…Please enjoy the Journey through the exhibition and remember- 'The truth shall set you free.'
