Il Mare à Fiamme

In 'Il Mare à Fiamme' an austere, gloomy sky looms over a golden landscape. ‘Il Mare à Fiamme’ translates to ‘He’s swimming in flames’, the striking gold foreground suggests a type of hopefulness amidst the struggle, perhaps even hinting at a new beginning…

Davis’s work is as much about the sense of touch as of sight, using texture through chalk-based pigments, tinted French polishes, and waxes to achieve an intriguingly textured surface and remarkable visual depth. His often muted palette establishes a timeless quality to his pieces.


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 the capital and Berkshire.
