‘Canvas’ is the second iteration of a body of work Gerry Davis has been working on since late 2015. These paintings are an exploration of the spaces in the Wickham Street Studios in Limerick, where he works. Seeing the studios as a microcosm from which to explore his own context within a wider art community, the paintings are both autobiographical and outward-looking. Originally from Cahir, Gerry Davis graduated from the Limerick School of Art and Design in 2009 with a degree in Fine Art (Painting). Since then he has exhibited
regularly. He recently won the Hennessy Portrait Prize at the National Gallery and received a Merit Award at the Golden Fleece.
