COURTESY OF BROADBENT GALLERY
There has never been a very clear distinction for Davie between drawing, painting and printmaking. They are all done in an intuitive, improvised manner, so that his hand is, as it were, working on its own and Davie watches what happens. No one is more surprised and mystified by the results than the artist himself”
