Paul Davies paintings reveal a passion for modernist architecture, with the geometry of the houses he paints juxtaposed by the surrounding landscape. Working from photographs, then using stencils and paint, the paintings blur the lines between abstraction and realism.
At just 32 years old, Davies’ international profile is rising after showing in Los Angeles and London, prior to a solo exhibition at The Cat Street Gallery during the Hong Kong International Art Fair. Representing Davies, gallery owner Tim Olsen describes his practice as ‘a cross between Melbournian Howard Arkley and a technical drawing textbook (on acid).' Olsen recently put a toe in the Melbourne market, the solo show of Davies work sold out entirely prior to the opening.
