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.

Winter Light, Bitterly Cold

A freezing cold day during the January storms, but I am glad I decided to brave the elements. The winter light has a special quality, a grey-white brightness which has a beauty equal to that of golden summer light. The sea is restless, reflecting the changing shades of purple and grey in the sky.
