20 November to 3 December 2017
Artist Markus Davies will be showing, his latest series of paintings, for the first time in his hometown of Bray with the support of the Signal Art Gallery.
Originally from Germany Markus studied Fine Art at the National college of Art and Design in Dublin. He has widely exhibited his work in Ireland and the UK.
In the past Markus has collaborated with Irish and international Artists in the aim to raise awareness of disused spaces within our towns and cities. He’s currently planning a new project in London, which will see him collaborating with UK based artists trying to create a dialogue between Artists across different disciplines, with similar interests and influences in relation to the urban environment.
“Nonetheless Here” inaugurates elements of Architecture and encounters the spaces, places and structures that surround us in day to day life.
The paintings are typically generated in response of the Artist own personal experience of the build environment we live in. Questioning how he perceives these spatial experiences and what he senses and feels while encountering these places.
Each painting oversteps the boundaries between art and everyday space, exploring tangible elements, unforeseen spatial configuration and ever changing conditions of our surroundings.
Markus is constantly analyzing images of the build environment trying to confront the blandness of these commodified urban spaces through the medium of paint and a format of human reflection.
