Opening Reception I “flowra & fawna” I New Work by Jay Davis

Thursday, August 15: 4-7pm

Join LEVEE GALLERY for the artist’s reception of Jay Davis’ exhibition: “flowra & fawna,” a vivid collection of exquisitely realistic botanical images and creatures with a hint of surrealism. Davis’ work features exquisite, painterly surfaces with brilliant details of color and light.

“My work focuses on the plants and animals of Northeast Louisiana and explores the relationship between botanical illustration and surrealist sensibilities. Ever since I was a child exploring the woods and bayous in Monroe I have been fascinated by the shapes and rhythms of nature. With influences as diverse as Robert Thornton and Hans Belmer, new combinations are crafted from both traditional and modern visual language. What starts out as chaotic soon becomes a recognizable interwoven hegemony of fractal shapes and patterns, leaving a sense of both familiarity and new understanding.”
-Jay Davis
