Neil Davies - Earth, Sea & Stone
26th July to 30th August 2014


Neil Davies - Earth, Sea & Stone Working from his studio on the Penwith Peninsula, where nature is amplified and the scenery is ever changing, Neil Davies' works capture the heightened drama of a rugged landscape of ear th, sea and stone at the mercy of Atlantic weather systems.
This year's record breaking storms have provided a wealth of direct inspiration for this exhibition of starkly beautiful oil paint- ings, which are the result of many hours spent up on the moors in heavy gales, down at Sennen watching waves crash over the breakwater, or at Priest Cove on bitterly cold days in bright winter light.

Dense Bracken and Sunlit Cottages
46 x 61 cms
Walking to the Tinner's Arms, I notice these cottages up on the ridge, sitting above a wall of rust-brown bracken which is deep in shade. In complete contrast, they sparkle and shimmer as the sunlight catches them, bleaching them so that they blend with the sky behind.
