John Davis: The Illusion of Meaning Retrospective 2004 – 2014
October 25, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - November 6, 2014 @ 3:00 pm
Meet the artist in the Main Gallery
Saturday 25 October 2 – 4pm
John Davis exhibits a retrospective of his painting practice spanning 10 years in the Depot Artspace Main Gallery.
“As my painting has progressed over the last few years I have eschewed the picturesque in favour of a style more relating to pure meaning. As my final few works will attest I have come to the conclusion that there is in fact no meaning – and that ‘I’ the artist paradoxically does not exist. My mind is but a channel for the ‘omnipresent vibration’ – the force that pervades the entire universe as its driving power.
So I conclude: I do not exist; I conclude that there is too no God, contrary to my fore-held personal belief structure; I conclude that everything is illusion. Let it be, for it is so.” – John Davis
