Wallmatter. New Paintings and more available in the Gallery.

Monday, December 5th, 2016

New Paintings, sculpture and more available in the Gallery   Some are already framed others are ready to hang with all hardware attached.   Shipping included in the price!

I am influenced by abandoned and derelict spaces, vacant industrial sites, structures, old walls & graffiti.  The paintings below are about the connections and contrasts of imperfections, found in the urban environment, highlighting, insignificant marks, weathered surfaces.

Large Format Metallic Photographic Prints. Biomorph Series by Jenny Davis.

Large Format Metallic Photographic Prints. Biomorph Series by Jenny Davis.

In creating my artwork I use various processes. By physically dismantling objects and clothing, I reassemble them into something else. My intention is to reconstruct the significance, or purpose of an object, from its earlier meaning and appearance.

Found Object Installation & Stacks. Ideas & Photography.

I like to hijack, pull-apart, dissect and manipulate, familiar and found objects, to give new meaning to my installations, photograph’s and 3d ideas.

As a child, I would create little dioramas and arrangements and place them in my everyday environment, hoping to alter my reality, for awhile.

I used to watch my mum do this, to pretty- up the house and garden. She would use, whatever, objects we had on hand.

Using plastic flowers, decorated doilies and domestic objects, she would make our surrounds more, pleasing.

I recall an amazing tower of old TV’s, stacked high, with plastic fruit, flowers, floral china and decorated cloths in between.

Inspiration. Maidstone Museum Kent. England.

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I love this place!

When I was in England a few years ago, I visited the Maidstone Museum in Kent. The Museum is housed in a charming Elizabethan Manor House, in the centre of Maidstone.

I had the whole place to myself and spent hours, strolling through large rooms, full to the brim, with stuffed animals, neolithic objects, dinosaur bones, Wordsworth, ancient artifacts, primitive tools, old toys, decorative arts and crafts, gilded manuscripts, books and old artworks. There was even an Egyptian mummy.
