Gerry Davis is an Irish artist whose work reconciles the gap between the classical and the modern; flowing from representational oil painting to digital art. The lugubrious landscapes that characterise his paintings and digital prints transcend the barriers of waking life; capturing the surreal and lucid terrains of the dream world. 

A key aspect of his creative process is the application of traditional techniques to the modern mode; turning the conceptual into the practical. Like a subterranean Lewis Carroll, he presents us with captivating scenes that play with the relationship between the real and the absurd. Each evocative image provides the imagination with a unique piece of a puzzle of its own creation.
