ARTIST LOOKSEE: JENNIFER DAVIS
I have this pull-out poster of a bear-suited person from frankie magazine on my wall. I tend to just go "Oooh pretty!" and keep images without paying too much attention to who the author/originator is. Many times, I've seen a movie on tv, loved it but won't remember the title of the movie. I'm also bad with knowing the real names of actors... I digress. I found some beautiful works today and it reminded me of my poster.
Turns out it was by the same artist! Jennifer Davis, a painter of dreamy, surreal & gorgeous images from Minneapolis, USA. I love the quiet tension in her works. It's kinds cute without being cutesy and there is a floating, deeper something else in her work. I like the 'something else'.
Her works are mainly in acrylic, graphite & charcoal on paper or hardwood. It's feeding my inspiration bank, especially the use of paper & the floating quality. I've been thinking about both lately. note to self: pay attention to works you really like. It may feed your inspiration bank, which, is necessary because you never know how it may combine with all the other stuff in you to inspire you just when you need it. Jennifer has a blog of her available paintings & works on paper. There is also her etsy shop, and her website. p.s Are you on my newsletter list?
