Jeremy Cosmo Davies is studying at Northumbria University for an MA in Fine Art after spending many years working in the international aid game and establishing a small workshop in north Northumberland to relive his childhood passion for wood and being creative.
"I am interested in developing my art practice around the utilization of 'off-cuts' from projects and commissions which I have been intimately involved with.
Over the past year I have become particularly interested in how an object evolves into a new narrative by giving new meaning to unnamed forms, either produced by chance or through a formal presentation.
I have developed an interest in alternative photography practice – in particular the use of cyanotype. I find this practice doesn’t limit me in terms of scale, allowing me to produce large 3600mm x 1600mm work as well as smaller photograms. I anticipate doing larger work on tent canvas in the near future.
I have exhibited my sculpture work in Berwick Upon Tweed, Northumberland, at the Gymnasium Gallery on a number of occasions whilst participating in two invited group shows during 2009 and 2011. I have had a solo show at Gallery North Project Space, Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2012.
I am happy to co-operate with other artists and members of the public in their quest for meaningful expression through the language of art..."
