Painting from his studio on the rural out- skirts of St Ives, Davies' work is inspired by the starkly beautiful and ever-changing land- scape of the far west peninsula. Known for his dramatic oil paintings of Penwith's most spectacular views, Davies work plays witness to the seasonal changes, shifting light and elemental power of Atlantic weather systems over a coast eternally exposed to wind, storm and sea.
Spring, wild, cold and windy, has been by all accounts a bad one, although it has given me plenty of inspiration for this body of work. But still, against the odds, first the daffodils, then the bluebells, campion, stitch- wort, have all struggled through, the gorse is in full bloom, and the continuity of the land- scape is assured.'
