BIO and Statement

John Davis works in series. He works with an idea until he is no longer interested in pursuing its' potential. Davis will take aspects from existing series and rework them into new concepts. His Comic and Correction Fluid series are primarily collage with text painted out (neutralized) to make modular constructions. The more recent Codes and Cloud series use found paper, but are now concerned with imagery, emotive color and the context of landscape. These images evoke odd spaces that harbor information that is hidden.  Davis' work is interested in the shmaltzy, Romantic idea of the sublime and  spiritual idea of the display. The display is a Buddhist and Kabbalistic concept where known material reality is viewed as a holographic image, one that convinces the mind and senses it is real. Beyond the physical reality is a field of intelligence on another plane, coded, unseen and not easily accessed. If these concerns are not for you, take a deep breath, have a beer if you like and carry on.

John Davis was born in the Boston area in 1970. He received a BFA from UMass Amherst and a Masters in painting at the University of New Orleans. Davis has exhibited his paintings in Denmark, Italy, Austria, New Orleans and New York. His work was purchased by the director of the New Orleans Museum of Art and collected by the San Antonio Museum of Art. Davis has contributed as a visiting artist to the graduate program at Yale and was interviewed on NPR. John Davis lives and works in Houston, TX.
