"Approaching landscape from a fresh angle, I combine my interest in maps with that of abstraction, colour, form and surface texture. The work investigates how rural and urban areas can be, and often are, edited into one image to produce a landscape based on both reality and memory - thus becoming a unique cross-section personal to me.
This bringing together of elements of the real and the remembered, along with my personal experiences and affinity for the area, intrinsically become important aspects in the work.
Certain places and times can take on special meaning or folkloric significance, and it is these that I strive to represent in my paintings." Julian Davies
