Neil Davies - Unexpected
11th July to 29th August 2015


Neil Davies - Unexpected In this new collection of work Penwith based artist Neil Davies explores reactions to the unexpected, painting startling aspects of the landscape which have made him stop and take notice. Each canvas is created in response to a single anomaly - a cloud formation, a flash of sunlight on a distant cottage, the twisted contour of a gorse bush or a brand new, bright yellow boat dazzling on a muted granite slipway. From the ancient and familiar landscape of Penwith, Davies draws out nature's surprises, highlighting its endless capacity to turn the ordinary into the thrilling and remarkable.

A Break In The Clouds
46 x 46 cms
Coastal walk with visitors on a wild autumn day, sky bruised and overcast. Stopping to catch our breath, we see the clouds roll back, releasing a sudden shaft of light which bounces off the waves and multiplies into sparkling framents. Vistors suitably impressed - nature is a show-off.
