  • About this print

  • Janet E Davis

    I use a variety of media. This year, I have started to get back to painting and to explore printing seriously (I recently became a Northern Print member so I have access to a very well-equipped studio). Digital photography has been my main medium during the past few years. I have made mosaics, ceramics and sculpture in the past. Occasionally, I do more graphic work, and have designed things for print and digital media. I have used digital imaging a lot during the couple of decades, although it is not always evident in the resulting work.

    I have rarely exhibited my work, despite a precocious start at 13 years old with an enamelled copper dish in a national exhibition of children’s art.

    A couple of my pieces were shown at the V&A Museum in 2000, and subsequently acquired for the museum’s permanent collection. More recently, one of my photographs was included in a digital display – ‘Documenting Contemporary London’ – at the Royal Academy in 2010. My photograph of a village cricket match was featured in The Guardian’s The Northerner blog in 2011. A regional paper, The Journal, has published a few of my photographs: a baptism in the sea in 2010, a culture hack day event at the Discovery Museum in 2011, and one I took of Herb Kim and artist Kelly Richardson at a CultureCode event in spring 2012.

    Some urban, river and coastal areas feature a lot in my photographs because they are places that I find especially fascinating as the light, weather and people change them. I like the details that make up the rich textures of the environment.
