BIO

 

     A resident of Cincinnati, Ohio, Davis' paintings aim to uncover and uplift the discarded and overlooked within his urban surroundings. The city's rich history and character manifest themselves in the architecture and inhabitants of his daily life, thus providing the platform for his work. Layers of urban decay give insight into the city's past and work to form a residue of existence that can often mimic the painting process. Through sensitive and careful construction, he utilizes methods of traditional oil painting and an aesthetic pulling from American painters such as John Sloan, Edward Hopper, and Thomas Eakins.
