“I am biased but this truly is a beautiful original piece of art and incredibly poignant” – Mark Davies.
The 4 x 3ft canvas is heavily embellished with paints and gilding waxes, micro glitters and diamond dust with the white float frame having a diamond dusted inlay.
Mary is the follow on piece to the incredibly successful 2017 Mary Poppins silhouette ‘It’s Not Goodbye’. The motive for creating this piece is drawn from seeing the acclaimed ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ with his family over Christmas. From the point in the film where Mary Poppins sings ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ – a truly beautiful song to provide comfort to the two children who lost their Mother.
“Last year, on the 24th January my Grandmother, Mary passed away – an incredible woman who I have referenced within my work for years. Sitting next to my Mother seeing her suffering in silence throughout this point in the film was naturally hard to see and has stuck with me since. So as with so many of my pieces to date I chose to create a visual reaction to this as my way of creating a sense of comfort through the image. Art is how I talk to myself and to others, it helps” – Mark Davies.
