Rhiannon Davies

Rhiannon Davies

Drawing from her background in fashion and textile design Rhiannon Davies covers her garment in purple spikes as an expression of discomfort and comfort complimenting the conditions of John the Revelator after consuming the scroll. In other mixed media works Davies refers to The Great Disappointment event experienced by the Millerite movement in 1844 whose warning of the advent appeared initially all in vain. The collage cut-outs of mirrors and other objects symbolising vanity are trampled upon by her clay angel foot sculpture, reminding one of the temporality of material possessions and indicating how an even stronger movement was born from The Great Disappointment- the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Davies introduces another character, a weeping woman. She prints the image of the woman on her red satin textile creation. This item stands as a testament to the Millerite movement’s persistence to unveil biblical prophecy in spite of adversity.
