Travel Bug

solo exhibition by Jake Davies

12 - 26 November 2012

While the term "travel bug" typically refers to someone with the inclination to travel often, artist Jake Davies, a well-experienced traveler himself, considers how important it is to be culturally aware and adaptable to your surroundings when traveling, much like a bug or virus. Morphing to take on the mannerisms and customs of a new country is often not only the best way to fit in but sometimes the best way to survive.

Jake's work is a fantastical and brightly coloured bricolage of words and objects in acrylic and ink, images and lessons from his time living and visiting countries across the globe.
