Hannah Davies

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 Art, graduating in 2002.Since then she has continued to live and paint in Cornwall exhibiting her work at Badcocks Gallery in Newlyn. Her oil paintings explore the theme of reflections and are inspired by reflections of the Cornish seascape and townscape in cafe windows. Hannahs work achieves a mysterious atmosphere by using transparent layers of oil paint, built up slowly, so that each layer is still visible on the canvas. On a glass surface inside and outside are merged, mixing private and public spaces, and producing strange and surprising areas where coffee cups and figures float through sea and sky.
