British Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: Ceri AUCKLAND DAVIES

Welsh artist Ceri Auckland Davies was born in 1951. He studied art at Dyfed and Newport Colleges of Art. After college Ceri decided to pursue a career in the Educational world teaching art in schools and adult colleges.

Throughout the 1990's Ceri Davies continued to teach whilst at the same time participating in mixed and solo art exhibitions across the UK. The new millennium saw Ceri focus on painting full time and he has been a professional artist ever since.

The thrust of Ceri Auckland Davies paintings are landscapes and seascapes of his native Wales, although he is equally skilled in capturing the magic and atmosphere of Venice. Ceri captures the moods of his landscapes and seascapes in small bold sketches on the spot, later to be worked into large charcoals and paintings in his art studio. Ceri's work fuses realistic elements with an abstract composition. To a certain extent the actual locations represented in the paintings are incidental to the atmosphere they portray.

Composition is all important to Ceri Auckland Davies and he spends an enormous amount of time getting things just right. He is one of just a few Welsh artists using the traditional egg tempera painting and a member of "The Society of Egg Tempera Painters". There is a luminescence to his paintings that isn't achievable with oils and watercolours.

Today Ceri Auckland contemporary paintings are in art collections throughout the world including the National Library of Wales' collection as well as the National Assembly. Paul Joyner of the National Library says of Ceri's work: "The tempera paintings of Ceri Auckland Davies suggest completeness. Sometimes that is seen as peace or harmony, other times it can be a sense that time has passed and the scene has settled to the present form. Whatever the true meaning, his paintings set up a dialogue with the viewer, which goes beyond the immediate.

Ceri has a technique of focusing on a small part of a landscape, which gives the space an unworldly feeling- so that even scenes known really well take on a new presence. That ability of showing familiar sites as strange, almost otherworldly is a technical quality derived from his chosen media: tempera. The paint is applied slowly, layer upon layer. This rhythm of the painting process aids contemplation and suggests that the subject is above the commonplace. Although it may only be a hint, we are always aware that these landscapes have more to say, if we only give them the time to speak."

Ceri Auckland Davies paintings express the artist's inner landscape. He uses land and sea as a metaphor for what he's feeling and that tension is reflected in his paintings. His seas are sometimes serene, sometimes threatening. The dark caves and caverns hide a world of shadows and hidden depths.

All of Ceri Auckland Davies paintings available from Red Rag Gallery in Bath are sourced directly from the Ceri Auckland Davies artist studio in Wales. Ceri Auckland Davies prints are also available from Red Rag Gallery

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water. Given the amount of the earth’s surface which is covered in water and the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, it is little wonder that seascapes have been such a popular subject for so long and no surprise that seascape paintings have an important place in the history of art.

Seascape paintings have a long history in both the Eastern and Western worlds.The walls of homes have been adorned with seascape paintings since the art of the secular painting first began to overtake religious works in numbers and importance.

As a country with an extensive coastline, paintings of seascapes have always had a special attraction to British artists. All the seascape paintings at Red Rag showcase the talent of British painters and their ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions. Many of the British artists who have painted these seascape paintings are also talented landscape painters, or worked in other genres as well as seascapes, such as still life or portraiture.
