David R. Harper's Biography:

David R. Harper is interested in the form and idea of memorials, those markers that formalize links between memory and present experience. Within his works – embroidered prints and taxidermy-based sculptures – he refers to certain periods, modes of craft, and embellishment that articulate peculiar links to an ‘ordered’ natural world. Harper obtained a BFA at NSCAD, Halifax (2006) and an MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2011). His work has been featured in a number of solo exhibitions, including Skin and Bone (Textile Museum of Canada, Toronto, 2010); Atlas (Art Gallery of Acadia University, Wolfville, NS, 2010), The Last to Win (Stride Gallery, Calgary, 2009). Harper has also exhibited in group shows in Canada and the US. His work is held in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. Harper is represented by MKG127, Toronto.
