Opposing Forces presents newly produced work that explores the common themes of separation, bodily functions and magical thinking, amongst other things. Drawn by an interest in the psyche and subconscious imagery, Davies’ attempts to create tension or an opposing force between these odd shapes and colours. They appear to either be on the verge of battle or about to get very close. The resulting installation alludes to the natural cycle of decay and renewal, the relationship between our bodies and everyday objects and general human awkwardness. Davies has used a wide-ranging array of materials from paper, fabric and wood to refuse and other found objects.
