BRIAN DAVIS

Although magnificent flowers and landscapes are the main choice for Brian Davis' compositions, he explains, the actual job of making an arresting piece of art has nothing to do with what the thing is. Davis transforms exquisite blossoms like roses, calla lilies, and dahlias into romantic, compelling images with sharpness, color, movement, edge, and light.

Before Davis begins his artistic journey on canvas, he combs the fields and gardens near his Los Angeles home for a flower or scene that catches his eye. He carries a camera everywhere so he can shoot a subject at any moment. Since flowers wilt so quickly, and it can take weeks to complete a painting, he has found a way to create a floral image from a series of different shots for each flower. He does not necessarily complete an exact botanical rendering as he changes colors and leaves at will.

Davis believes that the depth in his art is derived from paying attention to the subtle shifts in value relative to dark and light. He is often asked if there is a light source behind his paintings. The light is the real subject of his work; the flower is the stage, the light is the dancer. Using two hanging mirrors to view the unfinished painting at all angles, he works daily in his studio surrounded by books, music, and historical videos.

Davis is a true artist with a vast understanding and knowledge of art. It is his hope that viewers look at his works and respond, for then they are hearing his voice and understanding his concept. His paintings are a fascinating group of images that allow the viewer to feel and recognize the nature of light, the essence of a Brian Davis painting.
