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.

Early Spring Day On The Moor
43 x 58 cms
Beginning of April,spring colour very much in evidence alredy. Only sounds are the wind and a lone buzzard wheeling overhead, drawing my attention with its unmistakable cry. Granite cottage nestles amongst the vegetation in splendid isolation, part of the landscape. Sense of nature's endurance - all is as it should be.
