Angelina May Davis (UK) Lives and works in Birmingham

Angelina May Davis. Davis' paintings are fabrications, plundering imagery from childhood TV and art history. She is interested in thinking about the past and what shapes us, using the transformative act of painting to reflect on history and culture as well as her own sense of belonging. She has recently been restoring the English elm as depicted in remembered films, archival footage and English landscape painting as metaphor for loss and longing, recalling a nostalgic and insincere past. Her paintings are claustrophobic worlds in which there is ambiguity, artifice and the possibility of things just out of view. Davis has work in the Government Art Collection and several private collections
