Using the motto that “painting is fabrication with truth at its core” Davis examines her past and looks to memories of TV and childhood landscapes and trees, particularly the English elm. This particular species used to be very common but has been ravaged Dutch elm disease and these days you can only find it occasionally, in hedgerows. The artist sees the tree as a motif that reflects her nostalgia.
Angelina May Davis’ paintings are an amalgamation of snippets from the past often in studio interiors, creating their own sealed worlds.
