ABOUT THE WORK
Adopting strategies normally used in his large scale pieces, Robert Davis created The Hessian, 2020 exclusively for Exhibition A by applying decadent gold leaf to delicate stonehenge paper. Using materials both traditional (rabbit skin glue and oil stick) and quotidian (coffee, wine, and cigarette ash), Davis creates large scale geometric and textural abstractions. Often referring to our inability to have an undiluted experience in the world - such as attempting to modify our consciousness through the use of various substances - these dueling notions of reality and perception generate feelings simultaneously alien and familiar.
