GALLERY46 present Give Me Strength, an exhibition of new works by David Hughes & Paul Davis
David Hughes and Paul Davis have embarked on a collaboration involving photography, painting and everyday objects constructed with the intention of making something beautiful out of the banal. They wanted to recreate that moment when light, reflection and shadow can thrill and corrupt the eye at the same time.
Photographic still-lifes are framed along with two sheets of glass daubed with paint and markers. Shadows are cast as items peek through swirls of colour. Small plastic animals look lost, balloons become abstract, scourers attempt to become a rainbow. Freed from the everyday, these objects take on a different meaning. The images are fleeting views of the everyday fracturing it into a series of broken visual narratives appealing to both individual and collective stories.
Hughes & Davis present ten 700x700mm framed artworks.
