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.

Last Days Of Autumn
61 x 76 cms
Tramping the moors on a bright morning in mid November, weather surprisingly mild, landscape washed clean by recent rain, boggy under foot. Purple heather in bloom still, but ferns mostly turned to bracken. The season is turning, reminding me of a line from a poem -'If winter comes, can spring be far behind ?"
