Michael Davies

Title: Border

Michael Davies is a member of the Byker Mummers and an artist based in North-east England. Central to his recent artistic production have been bricolage images of domestic banality and escapism. A recurring motif for the artist has been of flying ducks; here altered to suggest bullet wounds, shell bursts or flowers... which appear to resonate with the use of white handkerchiefs as both love tokens and signals of surrender.
