Matilda Davis’ works are personal constructions imbued with peculiar characters, lush darkness and latent narrative. Extending from magical realism, complex psychological landscapes come together with forms of molten fluidity. Davis is inspired by female artists associated with surrealism – such as Leonora Carrington, Florine Stettheimer and Frida Kahlo – who share her penchant for creating personal worlds. With a background in theatre, she draws elements of this medium at different stages: a script, a draft, a rehearsal and the final act. With their fine details and personal symbology Davis’ paintings are rife for close viewing and contemplation.
