‘BOOM!’ IS OUR FIRST JEALOUS SOLO EXHIBITION OF THE YEAR, COMPRISED OF BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL NEW VOLCANO PAINTINGS BY ARTIST, SCULPTOR AND ILLUSTRATOR MR PAUL DAVIS.




“VOLCANOES ARE MIND-BLOWING AND SOMETIMES SO ARE WE.

HUMANS ARE ASTONISHINGLY ADEPT AT INVENTION AND DESTRUCTION.

STARTING ABOUT 3.8 BILLION YEARS AGO, EXPERTS SAY VOLCANOES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR AT LEAST 80% OF THE LAND AND FOR UNLOCKING PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THE WATER HELD IN THE ROCK ON OUR 4.6 BILLION-YEAR-OLD PLANET.
 
ATMOSPHERE, WEATHER SYSTEMS, OCEANS AND EVENTUALLY ORGANISMS EXIST DUE TO THIS PROCESS. WITHOUT THESE NOURISHING, MOUNTAINOUS TAPS, LIFE—INCLUDING US—WOULDN’T EXIST.”
 
PAUL DAVIS, 2021.





VISUALLY, THESE MIXED MEDIA WORKS ARE AS BOLD AS THEY ARE DELICATE. EXPLORING THE EXTENT OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN, THESE WORKS EXCLAIM AND SHOUT AND PERHAPS, EVEN MORE POWERFULLY, ALLOW US TO REFLECT ON OUR JOYS, TRIUMPHS, FAILURES AND CONCERNS.

ALONGSIDE THESE PAINTINGS, PAUL DAVIS HAS ALSO ALLOWED US TO SHOW A SELECTION OF DRAWINGS ON PAPER. FOR DAVIS THESE DRAWINGS ACT AS AN OBSESSIVE DIARY OF REMEMBERED AND OVERHEARD MOMENTS DEPICTED ON PAPER, WHICH REVEAL A TRUTH THAT CAN ALL TOO EASILY BE OVERLOOKED.




CREATED IN RESPONSE TO NATURE’S MOST EXPLOSIVE POWER AS A CATALYST FOR LIFE ITSELF, JEALOUS ARE ALSO EXHIBITING TWO VOLCANO LIMITED EDITION PRINTS, ‘YES VOLCANO’ AND ‘NO VOLCANO’.
