Indulge

Indulge is a painting to reduce worry. From a cosmic perspective we live for a blink of an eye, take pleasure in the little things, love your faults and indulge.

Sensory Deprivation

We live every day through the collective data transmitted by the senses we govern. Without the evolution of these senses we simply wouldn't exist, we are our senses and our senses are us. But what happens when someone is placed in an environment void of all sensory influence?
Sensory deprivation focuses on the limitations of the human mind. Above is a young woman in an isolation tank, a lightless, soundproof tank containing a high epsom salt content and regulated at skin temperature. Floating in this tank rids the body of any external sensory influences, a defining contrast to the psychologically intense world we live in. Ive aimed to create a dreamy feel to this piece through the intense stare, floating hair and symmetrical features.

Trip to the sheds

This colour bleeding is a concept I've planned for a while, transforming a detailed yet seemingly dull environment into a beautiful piece of abstract art.

Co-existence

Co-existence is an idealistic take on Humanity’s relationship with Mother Nature. This artwork represents the possibility of humans peacefully and harmlessly co-existing with all other life on Earth. With man being solely responsible for the rapid destruction of Earths environments, an idea like this is easily discarded as unrealistic. However, with the consistent advancement of technology and the collective awareness of humanity’s actions and reactions, this utopia could one day become reality. Co-existence requires, if nothing else, sharing. Above is a young woman submerged in a sea of foliage, sharing with the plants the most important influence to all life on earth, sunlight. This seemingly insignificant act puts purpose into the tiny, every-day actions we can make to improve the earth, actions that are generally discarded due to a dwarfing sense of hopelessness. The near 50/50 divide of sunlight is exactly how this issue needs to be approached, with equality.

We Are Stardust
Everything we know to collectively contribute to our physical world has been born from stars. Somehow we owe our existence to such a violent and intimidating reaction. This artwork aims to pay tribute to the stars, comparing the complexity and delicacy of the human face to its nuclear fuelled creator

Joshua Davison
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
New Zealand
My name is Joshua Davison, I’m a full-time artist based in Auckland, New Zealand. My primary focus lies with contemporary portraiture, I’ve developed a mindset surrounding singularity, striving to create work that is absolutely unique. Over the passing years I’ve acquired a strong interest in psychology, that interest has been translated onto canvas behind intricate themes. I aim to develop my artistic practice as efficiently as possible, analysing my works upon completion, highlighting any faults and ridding my next work of them. My latest series ‘Psyche’ focuses on the complexity of our individual personalities, represented by the intricate layers of colour. The idea is to allow the viewer a chance to get to know the subject without conversing, a process which, in the real world, takes a significant amount of time and affection. In the coming years I aim to precisely develop my process, I want to dive into surrealism, creating works which focus on multiple important issues surrounding society and our place in the universe. Along with psychology I also have a huge fascination with astronomy, evolution and ultimately, the cosmos. Id love to incorporate an astronomical theme into my works one day, however I’ll let that develop naturally. I have a consistent flow of ideas from mind to paper, in the coming months I plan to evolve my process radically and produce some truly magical artworks.
