Galen Davison

galenWorking with plaster, zinc, copper, wood, ceramics and artist grade paint, Davison describes his technique as “a loose flow of movement, a visual journey.” His latest series is called Petal Paintings - and whether he casts his eye to abstract landscapes, seascapes, or still life studies, the results are works of bold beauty that fill their spaces with wonder, peace and delight.

Close study of a Davison work reveals a thousand tiny mysteries reflecting his many curiosities: the wonder of nature, the power of light, the ubiquitous icons of modern culture, the prettiness of a flower. Says Davison, “I like to think of these images as objects - more like flat sculptures. It’s like arriving at an archeological dig and trying to decode the layers of history and visualize the actions and decisions of the archeologists.”
