CERI AUCKLAND DAVIES
Ceri Auckland Davies is one of Wales' few exponents of egg tempera painting and a member of "The Society of Egg Tempera Painters". There is a luminescence to his paintings that isn't achievable with oils and watercolours. He captures the moods of his landscapes and seascapes in small bold sketches on the spot, later to be worked into large charcoals and paintings in his studio. Ceri's work fuses realistic elements with an abstract composition. To a certain extent the actual locations represented in the paintings are incidental to the atmosphere they portray. They are, without doubt, a vehicle to express the artist's inner landscape. He uses land and sea as a metaphor for what he's feeling and that tension is reflected in his paintings. His seas are sometimes serene, sometimes threatening. The dark caves and caverns hide a world of shadows and hidden depths.
