Biography John Davis Carroll

     Kansas City-based artist John Davis Carroll, whose paintings, drawings, and video constructions question classifications of what is considered natural or unnatural in our surroundings. His subject is often discovered along the Missouri river where forces of nature and human are accentuated. Industrial engineering and organic process commingle at these sites, speaking of humanity’s ongoing attempts to define, control or otherwise set aside a natural world that is both omnipresent and inextricably linked to us through our mutual efforts to encroach.

    Carroll is represented by The Late Show Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri where he had a reviewed solo show “Snow” in 2010. He had his first installation of mixed media drawings and video constructions in an invitational show titled “Overland” at the Epsten Gallery Overland Park Kansas 2011. The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art has acquired two of his paintings for their permanent collection and his work is collected by local and national private art collectors. Carroll was awarded a studio space for a year through Charlotte Street Fund's Urban Culture Project Kansas City, Missouri in 2011. He is currently participating in the Art Through Architecture, completed the Artist Inc. program, received a "Best of Show" for his new media construction "Winter" in Small Works 2009 at NYU, New York City and for his painting "Nicholson Ave" at the Art of the Center 2008 in Overland Park, Kansas.

     Carroll received his B.F.A. in Painting 1987 from Swain School of Design in Massachusetts. His Graduate studies were at Parsons School of Design in New York City graduating in 1990. In 1993 he moved to Kansas City, Missouri where he currently resides.  Carroll teaches drawing and painting at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas and life drawing for the Masters in Theatre Design at UMKC in Kansas City, Missouri.
