John Davies (English, born 1946)
Born in Cheshire, Davies studied sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Art in London, under Reg Butler, from 1967 to 1969. In the late 1960s Davies began making body and head casts in plaster, incorporating glass eyes and clothing the figures in real clothes. He became particularly well-known for his life-size figures with deathly-grey faces, which were exhibited both individually and in groups. The groups of figures were posed in such a way as to make the exhibition space into a theatre, with numerous combinations of figures possible, suggesting a number of different relationships.
