PULLED BY A POWERFUL FORCE CALLED THE FECUNDA, SI LEAVES BEHIND HIS NICE LITTLE TOWN AND FINDS HIMSELF IN A LAND THAT IS FARAWAY AND YET SIMULTANEOUSLY JUST OVER THE NEARBY HILL.
WITHIN A LAND WHERE THE ‘LO-TEC’ SEEMS TO DO ‘HI-TEC’ THINGS, IN WHICH THE INHABITANTS DO NOT SEEM TO WELCOME ‘UNCHARTEDS’, THE CHARRDITES AND THE INCANA DOMINATE, AND A HEAVINESS, LIKE A CURSE, SEEMS TO HANG OVER THEM.
R D Davies was born in 1972 in Heswall, Wirral. His first published work was a drawing of ‘Ghastly McNasty’ in The Eagle comic in the early 1980’s. During his Fine Art degree in Staffordshire University, he spent a lot of time in the Peak District, around an area called The Roaches – an atmospheric area of crags and moorland (at that time populated by a small group of wallabies). It was here that the character of Gunn was first born: a self-sufficient maker of maps, existing on the bleak moors in all weathers. Alongside his own painting projects, he continued to develop ideas for ‘The Uncharted’, which he completed in 2021.
