Joe Davis - New York USA

Joe's vision is to create work that incorporates the dynamic nature of our modern society. He is most interested in the byproduct produced by the exchange of attitudes and ideas where contrasting elements collect and form a new derivative by combination. His desire is to create imagery that suggests a populace of space by several values having intrinsic harmony though there is variance in renderings and objects.






















.“I want to reflect on canvas an aspect of the diverse interaction so pervasive in city life - where culture, sights, sounds, activity, and expressions are a continuous influence on our senses. In my work, renderings and symbols embody the space to produce an aesthetic value with collective imagery that draws individual interpretation.”
.
To achieve this end he often begins by drawing on canvas using media such as lead, charcoal, and inks. Acrylic washes are then incorporated, upon which more renderings are applied and the procedure repeated until the final outcome is realized. He works primarily on bare linen canvases to accentuate a raw grounding. On occasion the same is applied to wood surfaces.
.
As a New Yorker he is subject to a landscape busy with gestures and expressions juxtaposing one to the other. This approach has led him to consider his work an element of a larger space – an expression present in the company of others, thereby having voice and individualism manifest in greater degree due to the relation of surrounding components. For this purpose his compositions are often simplified in sincere appreciation for amplifying what is being said.
