Gareth Hugh Davies

Gareth Hugh Davies is best known for the powerful, enigmatic and haunting imagery in his paintings. The absence of the figure in familiar visual references such as pine forests, grey skies, rain clouds, urban lighting and tracks in snow enables several interpretations. “I’m interested in the the quiet drama that simple visual references can create. They can be read as meditations on the tensions between light and dark, the remote and the familiar, comfort and a sense of isolation.These pieces are also as much about our transience as our ability to transform the land in which we inhabit”

Gareth Hugh Davies trained at Dyfed College of Art, Carmarthen, Portsmouth Polytechnic and North Staffordshire Polytechnic, specialising in Stained Glass design. In 1990 he won the Gold Medal for Fine Art at The National Eisteddfod of Wales. He has exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery, with the RBA at the Mall galleries and on several occasions at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions.

His work is held in numerous private collections and the public collections of the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea, University of South Wales, Oriel y Bont,  and Carmarthenshire County Collection.  He lives and works in Carmarthenshire.
