4/7/2012 - Art exhibition Open in Marian Acree Tucker Gallery
The exhibition Tenants, which features the artwork of Chicago, Illinois-based painter and sculptor Brett Douglas Davis, opened April 4 in Marian Acree Tucker Gallery at Judson College. The works in the exhibition are for sale. The show will continue through Sunday, April 15.
Originally from rural northwestern Pennsylvania, Davis studied at the competitive Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Visual Arts. He also studied at the Marie Sklodowska University in Lubin, Poland, and went on to receive his BFA in painting from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. In 2008 he was the coordinator of the Distillery Residency, an 8 month studio residency program that builds a bridge between fine arts in the academic realm and the career development as an individual artist.
Regarding the work in this exhibition, Davis commented:
“The work is meant to call out for the spirit. Individually, the pieces vacillate between two and three dimensions in order to capitalize on the transitory and elusive nature of the soul. A rhythm of fluctuation between presence and absence, of yearning and menace is intended. As with all of the work in the past there is latent trauma. There is evidence and residue of struggle unflinchingly laid bare. The messiness of humans and human self awareness continues to feed the work. Special attention is paid to the concept of individual agency within a lifespan. If memory is fleeting and sparsely constructed, what does this imply of action?”
Davis has an extremely impressive exhibition record, and
his work appeared in the 2009 mid-Atlantic edition of New American
