DESCRIPTION

Gerri Davis

 

There is no easy irony in Gerri Davis’s paintings. Her work reflects a range of influence as diverse as the renaissance through contemporary popular culture, distorting or exaggerating forms with a rare technical skill. A combination of realism and conceptualism, the paintings transcend sourced materials and are enormously seductive in form and content.

 

Gerri Davis paintings balance a series of dichotomies — high art and popular culture; stylization and subjectivity; realism and fiction; discomforting imagery and visual pleasure while capturing the viewer’s imagination through dramatic brushwork, and richly modulated surfaces.

Trafficking in visual puns and creating intricate perceptual conditions Davis elicits different readings and intepitations.
