Paul Davies

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Like pages from a space-age Architectural Digest, Paul Davies’ painted houses hover in a surreal semi-state of suspense and beauty. His modernist houses sit amid an ever-changing backdrop of acid-toned skies and inverted reflections in placid swimming pools. The Australian artist’s work draws from a range of influences (the Bauhaus aesthetic and a childhood obsession with Jeffrey Smart to name two). I’d like to call his style Miami mansion meets David Lynch thriller meets Hockney-esque colour blocking. Either way it’s pretty wonderful.
