‘A Sense of Place’ is the first major solo exhibition by Tickhill based artist Ian Davenport. It represents work completed over the last 18 months whilst studying for a Degree in Fine Art. As a contemporary landscape artist, inspired by the open spaces and big skies of Northern England, this body of work describes an emotional connection to place through a bold use of colour, texture and gestural marks.
