Artist Profile

Tony Davis

Tony Davis has an extensive background in art education and has been exhibiting paintings and sculpture since 1973. Davis has seven solo and many group exhibitions to his credit, including exhibiting in Sculpture by the Sea 20 times.

A lifetime of experience with WA native timbers and many years as a fine wood craftsman/furniture maker has resulted in a preference for wood as his favourite medium for sculpture, often in concert with Corten steel. The magnetic language of wood, archiving time and place, contributes to a grounded connection with the environment, as Davis continues to explore intimate relationships between man and the increasingly hostile and ever-changing world around us.

The artist’s works are included in many private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas, including Minderoo, Kerry Stokes, Curtin University, Tim Roberts, Supreme Court of Western Australia, Bunbury City, Wanneroo City, Hotel Association of Western Australia, and Gowing Bros collections.

Double take is an imagined artefact from ‘an unspoilt culture of my dreams’, inspired by ancient cultures and their art forms which expressed the
indelible relationships between man and environment. It stands in mysterious ritual with alternate variations to encourage the audience to contemplate back-to-back enigmatic presences. Invested with the tactile, magnetic language of wood. It is an archive of time and place, blushed with the smoke of burning eucalypt, the human touch attesting to our impact on the environment.
