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.

Crashing Waves Over Sennen Breakwater
61 x 76 cms
Sennen breakwater is under siege in the winter storms - wave after wave hits it and surges over, crashing over the wall and gathering for another attack. The sound is as dramatic as the sight - roaring waves and rattling shingle drown out the sound of the seagulls.
