A Walk in the Park
F G Davis is a leading contemporary artist who has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, sharing his time between his homes in Devon and the South of France.
Known principally for his exquisite use of colour, texture and pattern, he explores many and varied themes with acrylic, collage, watercolour, gouache and mixed media.
His work is unique in its diversity, encompassing a wide range of subject matter taken from his everyday experiences and memories, working in a full range of scales, from intricate detailed pieces to bold large works. Interpretations are often witty and playful, capturing the essence of his starting points with a keen perceptive insight, frequently completed as part of an extensive series of work which testify to his love of experimentation and his unerring ability to tantalise the viewers' imagination. His work retaining a painterly integrity which shines through.
A memory of a visit to Killerton House and Gardens, Devon. The piece is divided into areas, each recording aspects of the gardens; flower beds, paths through woods, secret gardens, etc. textures are achieved through calico, cotton and hessian, collaged prior to the application of numerous gels and pastes together with acrylic paint.
