Abby Davies is a Welsh artist who uses a wide variety of mediums within her practice, such as drawing, painting, photography and printmaking, to create fictional narratives through a series of visual imagery.
Davies’s work is normally inspired by and revolves around her interest in silent-era films, choosing to focus on the characters,
contrasting lighting and camera angles, all of which Davies uses to create a dramatic and atmospheric narrative.
Recently, Davies has delved into her own personal connections to Welsh folklore and mythology. Davies has been exploring this topic by collecting her childhood stories of growing up in South-West
Wales, as well as researching Arthurian Legend and The Mabinogion. This has led her to create a supernaturally charged narrative through her use of various media, concluding in a series of paintings and a book format.
