Davina Jackson is a figurative artist based in London where she currently works from a studio at Kingsgate workshops. She graduated with a masters from the Royal Academy Schools where she also won the Gold Medal for painting. Her interests have remained in the theatrical and psychological use of space and a search for poetic simplicity. She continues to develop themes exploring human relationships and emotional states, finding and articulating the essence of an intimate moment or experience through the simplification of forms, mark making and painterly gestures.
She has made regular appearances at The Royal Academy Summer exhibition with her 12th inclusion this year, The Discerning Eye and at Art London and over the past several years, has had 3 solo shows with The Albemarle Gallery, with one in Trieste, Italy, curated by Edward Lucie-Smith.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The two works I have donated to this auction express a private moment in time where we witness a glimpse of something familiar, something very human, a space for reflection. A figure we don’t know but I hope we somehow recognise in ourselves.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON ARTWORK IN OUR ART ON A POSTCARD AUCTIONS IF YOU INTEND ON SELLING THE ARTWORK AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT. THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN ORGANISED FOR CHARITY AND ALL ARTWORKS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY THE ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HEPATITIS C TRUST. WHEN THE WORK PRODUCED FOR THE CHARITY IS SOLD ON THE SECONDARY MARKET IT DAMAGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARTIST AND PREVENTS US FROM FUNDRAISING.
