Rick Amor / Philip Davey

Queenscliff Gallery 81 Hesse Street, Queenscliff, VIC

Exhibition dates: Mar 11 – 29, 2021
Preview evening: Wed, Mar 10 from 4 – 6 pm (RSVP via 03 4202 0942 / theo@qgallery.com.au)
Official opening: Sun Mar 14, 3 pm – 5 pm, 20211

Rick Amor and Philip Davey both share a love of plein air painting; both artists take a bold approach to composition, and there is an obvious confidence in the technique of both artists. However, a closer inspection of their broad bodies of work invites a far more complex appraisal of their decades of drawings, paintings, ceramics and sculptures. The brooding and the urban prevail in Amor’s work, with pieces that are often characterised by a sense of tension and mystery; darkness and disquiet. Davey’s work on the other hand tends to be brighter; lighter; less introverted.
