Stevie Davies Surface Details Project

Surface Details Project

This innovative exhibition lead by Stevie Davies will feature photographs, drawings and mixed media artworks all created by a number of artists and makers.  The exhibition will have a clear focus on artistic experimentation, development, collaborative works of art and mini on-site residencies to encourage playful interactions with the theme.  

Stevie Davies started the Surface Details project as a result of her fascination with taking photos while out and about, capturing images of textures and colours which most people walk past without even noticing; the idea being that we need to slow down, look around us and appreciate the little things in our surroundings.  Stevie comments: “I like to find the beauty in the smallest of details, most passing by wouldn’t even give them a second look but I can’t help but be fascinated by the textures and colours of a section of pavement after it has rained when it’s showing off a shimmering interaction with a layer of engine oil”.

Each artist has been asked to respond to an original photograph and their creative process has been documented. The results will be showcased alongside documentary imagery to highlight the processes and skills used.  Each piece within the exhibition has been created using processes which are true to each artist/maker. Visitors will also be invited to leave their own response to the theme in the form of drawings, creative workshops and social media interactions.  Get involved using #SurfaceDetailsProject and find out more by searching for the ‘Surface Details Project’ on facebook and Instagram.
