Paul Davies's art-making practice includes painting, stenciling, photography and sculpture with a focus on the relationship between the built and natural environment. He selected his subject matter to describe the manner in which architecture is mimicked on a local and global scale, in response to climatic, economic and social concerns. These environments are “stylized” through stenciling, which involves processes of repeating, mirroring and inverting images in various combinations. Utilizing a combination of analogue and digital technologies, Davies creates a form of pastiche that references the past as a means of providing a lens through which the viewer can make sense of the present. His work depicts scenes that comprise an amalgam of elements to juxtapose, repeat and mirror built and natural environments from a variety of contrasting locations. Although stenciling reiterates the ideals and anxieties associated with the subject, the relationship between the original and its reproduction is blurred through this process.
