Rob Davies is a Wirral-based artist who paints large-scale watercolour landscapes. His initial inspiration is the notion of a romantic “sublime”. Davies’s artworks are eclectic, but mainly combine elements from semi-industrial and semi-wild environments into landscapes that hover somewhere between real locations and science fiction. The paintings, using a variety of media from watercolour to oils, depict these quasi-imaginary landscapes with a mix of realism and gestural mark making.

One of Davies’ interests is in the mind’s tendency to wander, its desire to be elsewhere. We often try to romanticise what we are seeing, or to project our thoughts onto what could be called ‘mundane’ environments. Locations such as train tracks or embankments become translated in these works as fitting starting points for exploring such inclinations.
