Joseph Davey is originally from Sussex. He studied fine art painting at Brighton University (1999-2001)
and remained in Brighton for a few years after that. Joseph has been continuously painting since
then and fifteen years ago he moved to Östersund in Sweden with my family, which is where he now lives, and works. His painting practice is a contemplation, reflection, expression, and documentation of poignant
instances within his life. He works from source material in the studio, almost always photographs that he has taken. This allows him to reflect on the chosen images and the reason for their collection. It also allows the
paint itself to become more dominant in the work.
