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.

Abandoned Cottage Bathed In Light
25 x 30 cms
Walking on the moors, this partially ruined cottage draws me away from the path. Shame it has been abandonded when so many like it still provide a home - I have come to love these isolated moorland cottages. Hoping someone rescues it before it's too late, I am answered by a burst of sunlight which radiates across the roof, and see this as a good omen.
