Product Description

Life Will Find A Way – Jurassic Park (Standard) Mark Davies

I absolutely loved this film, amplified because of my fascination for dinosaurs as a child. T-Rex was always a favourite for me and the fact that he featured with such dramatic effect in the Spielberg picture albeit with pretty harsh results made it such a great film personally. The majestic nature of the creatures, brought back to life was incredible to see whilst the darkness that ran throughout the narrative coupled with sheer terror in parts resonated with me. I’m not sure if the T-Rex devouring the guy sat on the toilet left more of a lasting impression on me than the spitting Velociraptor that ate the tubby guy in the jeep, that was terrifying to watch.

 

I wanted to go in a different direction, creating an intriguing scenario that is full of detail that is open to interpretation that allows you to decide what has happened or in the midst of happening. I wanted to create a landscape that was beautiful, really beautiful, one of scale and wonder yet one that has a darkened quality where you’re afraid to look into the shadows in case you stumble upon something that is waiting, watching!

The contrast between mother nature and man is clear as day here, a beautiful forest with a majestic waterfall and meandering stream are impacted by a jeep that is trampling over all things bright and beautiful. Although I have left so much open to interpretation I have suggested however that the scene shown is set further on after the dramatic events within the park where the good plan had imploded into carnage. Look through the trees and you can’t not see the glow from a huge explosion – is that the park imploding or an eruption? The warmth from the fires that rage not only bring fear but comfort. Is nature taking back control?

The branded experience set up by the parks owners was left in tatters and most probably should have been left well alone, to be reclaimed by nature. However, an opportunist with an eye for a fortune looks to have exploited how exposed the venture was and has taken it on, whether it is being driven by good or bad hands is up to you. Is the past the past or is it the future? Who ultimately is the creator and who is actually the creature?

Greed breeds monsters but life will always find a way.

Mixed Media British Artist Mark Davies was born in Bedfordshire in 1978 and studied Fine Art within the region with his early works being inspired by the compositional qualities of Piero Della Francesca and Giuseppe Arcimboldo whilst finding inspiration in the surrealism of Salvador Dali. Now living in St Neots Mark works full-time as a professional artist from his beautiful converted brick barn studio within the Cambridgeshire countryside.

Mark’s now signature ‘Storyteller’ collection showcases his ability to conceive and implement his own narrative to cherished fairytales and classic fictional stories to stunning effect. Inspired by the eloquence of Hans Christian Andersen and ingenuity of the Grimm Brothers, a whole host of much-loved stories have been turned on their head with each chapter being re-written as Mark embraces the often much more sinister plot and motives of the original authors that most don’t know exists as these classics are re-told to generation after generation.

As well as creating mesmerizing imagery full of detail there has always been a subtle and genuine moral quality to the work created to make you think a little deeper. Mark’s original works have created such a wonderful interaction between artist and audience as each searches out the detail and pieces together the plot with the hope that they can get an insight into Mark’s thinking whilst being encouraged to offer their own interpretation of what they see or often don’t see within the image. This genuine engagement has played a significant part in Mark’s gallery shows and appearances being so successful and truly special events.

As the body of work has grown so has Mark’s reputation for creating art with genuine meaning, art that stands on it’s own and that is driven by a fascinating multi-layered narrative like no other. His skill of storytelling has expanded across other areas including stage and screen as he delivers his signature style across a broad range of subjects and genres that continue to pull on the heart strings and embrace nostalgia and the memories that we all hold so fondly. In addition to building a solid gallery presence, Mark’s success has seen his work proudly displayed and selling within iconic venues that include the London Playhouse and Fortune Theatre within the iconic West End along with the highly respected Mall Galleries in London.
