These surreal paintings by Ian Davis are intricately detailed pieces of work. They display repetitive beings conforming in a single location. These structures created in the surreal paintings are incredibly imaginable and yet, possess an uncanny resemblance to everyday structures.
Davis's art is almost reminiscent of groupings of birds or lemmings in how they imitate and follow each other. This art concept can be used to explain the slightly more evolved way in which humans emulate each other as well. It is almost a commentary on everyday life and the conformity that takes place. This conforming behavior is further exemplified in the uniform clothing and look of the subjects within each piece. They almost appear to be a large grouping of clones.
