About

Nottingham-born artist Gareth Davis explores – and delights in – the insurmountable chasm between art and writing.  Taking his cue from Twentieth-Century Conceptual artists, Davis plays with the language of popular culture and manipulates this to encompass philosophy and Poststructuralist thought.  The book, the record, the canvas…Davis continues to bleed the individual linguistic disciplines into foreign media and transpose archetypes from one traditionally rigid parole to another.

 

Gareth Davis has exhibited locally in the West Midlands, and has supplied graphic design for DaDaFest, Blue Orange Theatre and The Old Joint Stock.

 

His most recent work uses the postmodern language of hauntology to celebrate the life and music of Mark E. Smith and The Fall.
