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.

Dark Sky, Waves Like Thunder
61 x 61 cms
Winter storm looming, sky darkening - one flash of light left on the horizon. Low growling sound - could be thunder, but it is a huge wave, swelling and boiling, dragging rocks with it and grumbling as it nears the shore. Sudden sense of the power of nature - and of my vulnerability and insignificance.
