Channelling the bleak panoramic vision of a young David Hockney, Australian artist Paul Davies's newest series of paintings, are a contemporary lesson in pure aesthetics.
Taking his original spark of inspiration from an Aspen holiday magazine, Davies's block-coloured, eerily empty paintings are a clear expression of the artist's obsession with line and form.
With a keen interest in the Bauhaus and late modernist buildings, Davies's paintings offer a striking synthesis between artistic control and abstraction. Constructed using both stencils and free hand painting, Davies multi-disciplinary approach results in overall flat paintings with an unexpected depth.
