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.

St Ives Bay, looking out to sea, watching the clouds, grey, black and purple like a giant bruise sailing ever closer with slow inevitability. The sea catches the mood, churning and restless in anticipation, and takes on the same colours. Suddenly the clouds break, rain spitting and hissing in from the sea.Time to head back home.
