> DESCRIPTION

UBS 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work: Rob Davis / Michael Langlois

September 5-28, 2009

Davis and Langlois are collaborators who make paintings together, redefining the conventional notion that paintings are made by a single artist and embody a singular essence or “hand.” They met while in school at The School of the Art Institute and have worked together since 1997, each taking an equal role in developing ideas, choosing subjects, and executing the works. This unusual approach is accompanied by an out of the mainstream approach to contemporary painting -- photorealism.  Davis and Langlois’ work revolves around central themes that range from desire, family, and identity to martyrdom, utopia, and politics.

 

The artists lead a free gallery talk about their exhibit on Tuesday, September 16, 2009 at 6:30 pm
