Davina Jackson @ Pontone Gallery
15 March 2019 - 7 April 2019
Davina Jackson creates an intimate study of the family dynamic, where the relationship between husband and wife, parent and child take centre stage. Through tonality and form, she acutely conveys a subtle dialogue of care and affection, where embracing figures recline and comfort in the presence of the other. Though there is drama in these worlds too, as powerful contrasts in colour incur vivid motion and animation upon these figures that move towards and away from each other, as if dancing. These are not simply paintings of the domestic world with soft walls and gentle light, but works that interrogate and encapsulate a distinctive bond between subjects.
