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.

Spring Colours, Hannibal's Carn
91 x 91 cms
Spring has sprung, now well underway, new life shooting up out of last year's rusty bracken, gorse erupting in startling yellow clumps, beginning to give off its coconut scent in the warmth of the sun. Insects hum around its buds - nice to see the bees - and overhead two buzzards wheel and call. Hannibal's Carn towers above, aloof and indifferent to all this activity.
