Neil Davies - Time and Tide
6th July to 27th July 2019

 

Neil Davies - Time and Tide Through this new collection of paintings, I have attempted to portray the resilience and constancy of the forces of Nature: time and again man has made his mark upon the land - for good or bad - but, given time, Nature always reasserts itself, quietly creeping back, healing the scars and reclaiming the landscape. Examples can be found across Penwith, where old cottages, farm buildings and disused engine houses crumble away stone by stone, as the ivy breaks them down and the vegetation gradually returns. There is a soothing rhythm to the way Nature takes charge of the landscape, echoed in the tides which continue to ebb and flow around our peninsula, with a steady, unstoppable certainty.
Time moves on inexorably, rushing our lives along with it, forcing us to accept and adapt to necessary changes along the way. We talk of 'escaping' to the countryside, as if we sense that in Nature we have a chance to be still for a while, to absorb its comfortable stability, in the knowledge that the seasons will come and go, tides will turn, and all is as it should be.
Only recently has this certainty been called into question: have we now inflicted wounds too great to heal, or can these too be overcome? I have to believe they can
