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.

Towednack Bluebells and Windswept Elder
41 x 61 cms
Mid May, and the bluebells are in full bloom, lining the hedgerows with the campion and stitchwort. From the lower Towednack road, they lie in a purple haze up from the valley, clustering around the granite boulders and underneath the wind-shaped elder trees. Summer is on its way at last.
