Peter Davis is a prize-winning contemporary figurative painter whose meticulous work explores the subject of humanity and our relationship with technology. In this exhibition Davis aims to capture society’s zeitgeist, or spirit of the time, by creating contemporary portraiture which belongs in the here and now.
By documenting our digital and social mediated world, Davis’ work can be read as a social documentary which poses questions about our digital epoch and the alienation of the human being within contemporary society.
