About John Davison

 
 
  • Biography
    I have been a painter for 25 years, and throughout this period my paintings have been inspired by landscape and a sense of place. Landscape is integral to the subject matter of my work, and it also provides me with the means to explore connotations about the painting process. To me, painting is a similar awe-inspiring parallel pursuit to setting out on a walk and exploring new places. In the studio lots of things intrigue me; colour, spatial depth, mark making, composition, accident, layering, scale inversion and the physicality of paint. It is not my intention to replicate nature; I want to evoke a sense of it. I want the viewer to search within my paintings, as I have within the landscape. I paint in a range of materials in particular Oil, resin and oil based mediums, on canvas.
