Despite the pun in the title, Peter Davis's Eyeful 2021 is an unusually powerful and serious painting of Paris looking towards a distant Eiffel Tower. Devoid of cliché, the familiar view is sombre and majestic, with a compositional sense of linear perspective that draws the viewer into the scene. Typical of the Peter's work, the refined but textured surface of the painting is integral to the visual effect.
Peter Davis's work is as much about the sense of touch as of sight, using texture, tinted French polishes and waxes to achieve depth and warmth. An often muted palette creates a timeless quality to his paintings. Having trained as a scenic artist in the early 1990s, Peter has managed art projects on numerous films and West End productions, as well as creating scenes for fashion shoots and art house installations in and around London from his studios in London and Berkshire. Knowing his background explains the extraordinary grasp of perspective and depth, light and shade, which makes his work particularly atmospheric.
