Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 1 February 2 – 3.30pm
John Davis presents a series of paintings based on the Seven Days of Creation. In chronological order, Davis takes the viewer through a series of ‘snapshots’ – from the Big Bang to the coming of God to planet Earth, and beyond – where he has stuck to his personal belief structure, “One Planet, One People/One Universe, One God.”
This series speaks for him about theosophy, the universe and love. These have been constant themes in his work for many years, but it is only now, in this series that they have, as if by magic, merged together.
“The greatest magician would be the one who would cast over himself a spell so complete that he would take his own phantasmagorias as autonomous appearances. Would not this be our case?” – Novalis
