“My work is a running commentary on the absurdity, tenderness, fear and confusion that characterize my life with small children. I struggle with the difficulty and uncertainty of fatherhood, I rejoice and marvel at the awakening of a human spirit and I grieve for the turmoil and pain that comes from growing up and growing old. Much of the work is inspired by the unpredictable imagination and irrational fears of childhood, which serve as an allegory for the unpredictable imagination and irrational.” Benjy Davies
