1975

Comprised of a large series of graphite on paper drawings as well as three hand carved, graphite-patterned, wood sculptures, they might also be read as a composite portrait of Davis himself. Portraiture is a longstanding theme in Davis’s artwork and operates in this exhibition as both genre and form. This new body of work builds upon his sustained interest in the fluid interrelation of experience, psychology, and identity. Each of the images acts as a kind of reliquary for an intense memory that profoundly influenced his understanding and aesthetics: riding in the Ford F-150 that his grandfather drove; watching Julius Erving (Dr. J), who was a local star in the now-defunct Virginia Squires during the early 1970s; and siting in Eero Aarni’s iconic, futuristic egg chair.
