The Old School Welcomes Giles Davies

The Old School is delighted to showcase the work of Giles Davies, a new and welcome discovery for our little gallery in Swaledale. Summit-Thorpe-CloudLO  Through the medium of collage Gile’s creates images reminiscent of the fells and mountains that surround us, carefully matching the colours, textures and shapes of the scene with cuttings from colour magazines. Look from a distance and the collage blends together into a wonderful, vibrant landscape. Study more closely and you’ll find crowds of people, roads, cafes, flowers, lily ponds and tens of other abstract images, combining to create a whole much greater than the sum of its parts.Snowdon-icy-dawnLOWe think it’s wonderful, magical and quite unique stuff, and we’re sure you’ll think the same.
