Mixed Media by F G Davis.
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.
This piece is typical of the mixed media work of this artist. Using a combination of textiles and acrylic paints and mediums on unframed, ready to hang, box canvas. The piece protected with UV varnish and is signed on the front and back of the work.
The work recalls family trips to Bigbury which have been so much a part of the experience of living in Devon. The famous tractor and Island are interpreted within this bold and colourful piece.
