Paul Davison is a British artist who lives in the Parc naturel régional in the Haut Languedoc region of southern France. With a background in exhibition design and sculpture, he was inspired to return to his first love, painting, by the outstanding natural beauty of his adopted home.
Paul hopes that through this website you will be able to share something of his love of this landscape. He is constantly striving to translate the interplay of light and shade onto canvas because it is these two factors that dictate our perception of form and, in a manner of speaking, produce a ‘vibration’ that elicits an emotion in the viewer. Whilst the Languedoc is a vibrant, modern region with towns and cities profiting from a huge influx of people from other parts of France and abroad it is also a region of wild landscapes that have the power to awaken and sustain the love of beauty that lies within us all.
In this website you will find panoramic views, shady corners in medieval villages and vineyards turning orange and red under the autumn sun. Please enjoy the journey.
