Jim Davies explores the balance of light and dark in a series of emotive landscapes from areas around Alberta. His work is meant to encompass both narrative and en plein air representation of natural and invented environments. Davies’ expressive technique creates a lively narrative that places the Prairies in a mysterious and intriguing context. He has been painting and drawing for 35 years, developing his practice and style since graduating from the University of Alberta with his Masters of Visual Art in 1979. Davies is represented in public and private collections and has shown extensively throughout Canada.
