Gremlins at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Gremlins at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a Fine Art Print of a landscape painting by Cheshire based artist Ken Davies.
The piece was inspired by many visits to Pontcysyllte. The scene and the colours suggests a bright day in summer. There are only four gremlins hiding in the scene – this is in contrast to other pieces where there are many objects hiding in the pieces. This is because the scene is composed of few and larger squiggly shapes. The scene was created from photographs. The bold choice of colours are particularly effective in the piece.
Ken Davies is an avid doodler and an expert colourist. Ken is often asked about how he achieves clean white lines. Although the technique is a closely guarded secret, it is a traditional technique involving and pen and paintbrushes. Hidden things are an added feature to show a frivolous side. Many observers find their own shapes in the pieces like cloud gazing or attributing meaning to ink splats.
As an artist, Ken Davies, takes his inspiration from his love of the natural environment and enjoys capturing scenes associated with nature and water. He enjoys seeking out and playing with different media combining materials that initially seem incompatible. Gremlins at Pontcysyllte Aquaduct is a Fine Art Print of his hidden collection.
The print is 37 cm by 27 cm in a light snow white mount of 50 cm by 40 cm. There is the additional option to buy the natural solid wood frame which shows the work to its best.
