Acme Studios — Greta Davies

Supporting Artists since 1972


Greta Davies

Adrian Carruthers Award
2018/19

Greta Davies makes site-specific installations and works in a multitude of media including: paint, print, digital photography, stop motion and projection.

Her work is a graphic exploration of space that particularly examines the architectural volumes and voids in our everyday lives that are often overlooked or unnoticed. Through use of lines, patterns and optical illusion, the work invites the viewer to notice these spaces and observe them in a new light, opening them up to new experiences and playfully questions how her interventions and the space are viewed.

Upon completing her residency in September 2019, Greta presented Out of Shape at PEER alongside fellow early career programme artists Marylyn Molisso and Kate Howard, whose practices also centre on large-scale installation and sculpture.

Adrian Carruthers Award

The Adrian Carruthers Award is a partnership between Acme and the Slade School of Fine Art, funded by Acme and the Adrian Carruthers Memorial Fund. With the goal of providing a bridge between college and professional practice, the award includes a bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme tailored specifically to the graduate’s practice. Recipients of Acme’s early career programme occupy shared studio space in order to foster and encourage a greater degree of peer support and an environment of growth, risk-taking and excellence.
