Work by Bob Davison


Bob Davison

Exhibited from Saturday 2 July - Sunday 31 July, 2016

Bob Davison's paintings and drawings evolve from his interest in nature, science and landscape. He may begin figuratively, from observation, noting colour, pattern, structure and space. Much of the work as it develops becomes unrecognisable and abstract, attempting to show how we perceive things. Marks, colour, pattern and space become a complex mix; elements become transient and elusive. Details and contrasts seen in garden borders and Cotswold landscapes become striking combinations of colour, marks and shapes.

Bob has been teaching on the BA course at the Art School/University in Cheltenham for over 30 years. For the first twenty he commuted from his studio in London. Fifteen years ago he moved to Stroud. He has had many roles at the University, including Fine Art Field Chair and Course Leader of Fine Art Painting and Drawing.

He has exhibited widely and has works in many national and private collections. Locally they may be found in Glos Royal Hospital, The University of Gloucesteshire and Willans & Willans in Cheltenham.

The progress of The Walled Garden Project at the Museum in the Park has provided a great opportunity to exhibit some of Bob's recent work, particularly those that maintain their reference to landscape, gardens and plants. Much of the work stems from observations in his garden, just outside Stroud.
