Through the Looking Glass: New Paintings by Jennifer Davis
Friday, June 20th, 6-9pm
June 20 - August 17, 2008
In her own invented language of symbols that are constantly growing and expanding, Jennifer Davis creates paintings expressing unspoken thoughts that demand attention through their uncomfortable silence. Through the Looking Glass is a series of whimsical and emotional narrative portraits that communicate universal aspects of humanity’s more puzzling quirks.
Davis approaches her work as an intuitive process, creating layers of content and allowing vestiges of under layers to peak through the surface. She describes the animals, objects and people depicted in her pieces as each having a unique meaning to her own life: “From the confusing battles we fight within ourselves, to the familiar feeling of being lost in a crowd, each story is played out in a dreamland that somehow feels like home.”
