DaviesMoreUsing a retrospective approach, this collection of essays provides an illuminating and informative commentary on the artwork of Tim Davies. Explored are the practice, the international contexts, and the recurring motifs of Daviess art. Davies himself also provides a commentary on five of his significant pieces. Internationally exhibited and acclaimed, Davies utilizes humble, commonplace, or reclaimed materials to make works of art that engage with contemporary issues through a formal and minimal visual language. Discussed is a seminal work in which he laid parquet in the Belizean jungle, and plants then grew through the blocks and termites eroded them. Daviess use of change, both organic and by intervention, is explored.
