Exhibition: Peter BB Davis

Peter "BB" Davis’s art mixes abstract painting with cut and pasted images

The multi-talented artist, composer and writer Peter “BB” Davis is to exhibit Works, a collection of his latest paintings.

Davis’s art mixes abstract painting with cut and pasted images. Speaking before the exhibition, Davis said, “For me it’s all about a certain kind of energy which expresses itself through the work, which then forms, of its own accord.”

"In the paintings," Davis continues, "the images are often random, as for example in graffiti, which possesses a certain symmetry, and are suggested by what they can add at any one time – fascinated as I am by graffiti, and such as disposable magazine, advertising and newspaper ‘celeb’ and ‘filmic’ imagery, allied to the more visionary aspects of landscape. The images are de-constructed with thinners to take them back to the base before painting re-construction commences. Which can elicit many nuances.”
