Jack Davis

Unforgiving Porthmeor, 2021

Oil on canvas
150 x 125 cms


“This dynamic painting offers a semi-abstracted composition – the stormy sky reflected in the slick, wet sand gives a surreal dimension to the scene which is at once destabilising and entirely realistic. Full of energy in the pull of the receding water, the surging forward of the white waves and the movement of the heavy sky, the strong horizon line anchors the other planes of the painting, a moment of certainty in an otherwise tumultuous experience. The purples and mauves offer a pioneering palette for contemporary Cornish seascaping, a wonderful evocation of Cornwall’s dramatic and capricious guises, at times calm and tranquil, and fabulously moody.”
