“This exhibition tries to look at the changing skies in the area, investigating the cyclical relationship between the water and the sky. I’ve been told by one viewer that the paintings remind them of Greek mythology, the giant battles between forces that are hard to comprehend. Using the process of light and dark in the landscape represents the eternal struggle between light and dark, both the elemental symbolism of the landscape and the struggle within oneself.” Jack Davis

This dynamic, energetic painting showcases the glory and power of nature, truly embodying the exhibition’s title Elemental. A powerful skyscape of massing clouds, lit with brilliant vermillion, carmine and burnt orange, surges against a granite sky with tones of mauve, lavender and chromatic greys. Jack himself has said that that a viewer described the paintings as evocative of Greek mythology, the giant battles between forces that are hard to comprehend, and yet connect to our human sensibilities on a deep level.
