Hannah Davies ,Cornwall painter
Hannah Davies was born in 1980, in Cambridge. After completing her art foundation there, she moved to Cornwall, where she did a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Falmouth College of Arts, graduating in 2002. Since then, she has continued to paint in Cornwall, where she lives with her husband and two sons, exhibiting her work around the country.
Her oil paintings explore the theme of reflections, and are inspired by reflections of the Cornish seascape and townscape in cafe windows. Hannah’s work creates a mysterious atmosphere by using transparent layers of oil paint, built up slowly, so that each layer is still visible on the canvas.
On the beach, the outgoing tide seems to have left the figures stranded on a vast landscape under a reflected sky.
On a glass surface, inside and outside are merged, mixing private and public spaces, and producing strange and surprising effects, where coffee cups and figures float through sea and sky.
Hannah’s bird paintings use her layering technique to show the bird's flight path tracking across the sky. These paintings explore the elegant shape of the Canada geese that swirl and soar over her studio.
