Description & Technical information

Davie was uniformly pantheistic in his approach, seeking inspiration in runes, symbols and the mystical which cannot be easily comprehended by our modern Western eyes. In pursuing these spiritual interests entirely independently, the resulting artwork appears alien to and exists outside any structured artistic movement or stylistic tradition.
