The much sought after contemporary figurative artistic Jedi returns to the graphic fore this Autumn 2014 as Craig Davison reveals his very latest 8-part collection. But the one we’re especially interested in right here is ‘Super Trooper’; a rabble-rousing giclee on canvas affair which paints a picture of confrontational youth, yet with a light-hearted twist rather than one framed by spite and disillusionment.
And that’s because Davison’s art visually mirrors a time when malevolence wasn’t a word commonplace in the Oxford English, and boys being boys wasn’t a casually offered excuse for anti-social shenanigans. Far from it, as it simply implied adolescents were using their active imaginations to harvest harmless fun with their friends out in the parks and back gardens of eternal Blighty. As is very much the case here in this hand-signed, limited edition piece which primarily features three young lads re-enacting famous Storm Trooper moments, lifted directly from the iconic Star Wars movie franchise.
