 “The West Penwith peninsula is at the end of the line, remote, rugged and embodied with an ancient primal majesty. Living in such an impressionable environment evokes plenty of inspiration on a daily basis: I am drawn to the raw power of the natural environment and the sublime effect of light. I harness the impulsive energy of my subject matter and create order out of chaos like the landscape I inhabit.” Jack Davis

"Combining a variety of marks, textures and layers Jack creates an immersive and expressive response to the Cornish coastline. Jack often paints en plein air and encourages the essence of a place to naturally arise through the process.

Jack has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Scope Art Fair Miami, PROTECHT in association with the Whitechapel Gallery, The Threadneedle Prize: ‘Figurative Art Today’, ‘Painting Now!’ Bryant and Keeling Prize and was an invited artist to ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ in Cottesloe, Australia. Living and working in a former Sunday near St Just Jack's work has been acquired for prominent private and corporate collections across the world."
