Time Lord – Doctor Who (Large) by Mark Davies

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise! Just what on earth have you just stumbled upon? When I was planning this body of work I wanted to include some cracking nostalgic pieces that brought back all of those memories from growing up in the 80’s.

‘Doctor Who’ was a must, it sticks in my head from watching with my family. The quirkiness was great but even with the ropey special effects it had a darkness that caused a particular recurring nightmare that I will leave well alone!

I felt that there was a big opportunity to create something really special, something that didn’t appear to have been done to date, a scene loaded with an incredible amount of detail that was truly authentic and that the die-hard fans could embrace. It’s not a subject that you can rush or take on lightly for sure.

The catalyst for ‘Time Lord’ was the huge new chapter with the series that saw the introduction of the first female Doctor played by the talented Jodie Whittaker, an actress who I had the pleasure of meeting through my obsession with the ITV drama ‘Broadchurch’ with the plot truly capturing my immagination and the soundtrack inspiring so many of my works.

I love to inject a subtle narrative within the detail of the scene and this was embraced with the battle of control between the new arrival and the previous Doctor. There are small references to seek out that suggest something is going on, it just depends on how your mind works!

A piece created to enjoy and to interact with, to stir up great memories, to take a trip back in time whilst looking to the future – see what I did there? There is so much to spot and interpret, some obvious, some random, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on what is going on down in the woods.

I absolutely loved working on ‘Time Lord’, and it’s given me the opportunity for closure. Those bloody Cybermen scared the hell out of me as a kid so the saying ‘putting lipstick on a pig’ has been well and truly actioned here, it’s over!

We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?

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.
