NEW YORK, NY.- Gavin Spanierman, Ltd. and Peter Marcelle Gallery present an exhibition of works by Lisa Corinne Davis, on view August 11th through August 23rd. Lisa Corinne Davis’s paintings in oil on panel show her fluency in adapting abstract forms to the expression of meaning. Her forms have a rigorous ferocity that evokes wild-style graffiti, a kinship that is echoed in a color palette full of brights and contrasts, rendered with clean draftsmanship that sometimes echoes the “pop” of commercial illustration. Using a vocabulary of forms as individual as a fingerprint, she explores themes of hybridization, identity, and representation.

The proliferation and diversity of forms in her compositions stimulate the natural human desire to label and categorize. Some of her paintings teem with potent life, like a slide seen under a microscope, complete with microbes and dust mites, or larger forms like larvae, leaves, vines, seeds, stamens. Other works seem to draw inspiration from the inanimate world of circuits and motherboards, or the world on a macroscopic scale: roads, maps, city blocks, geographic fault lines. Even as the eye seeks to break down these swarming forms into manageable groups, however, Davis’s paintings reveal the futility of the brain’s impulse to force objects -- or people -- into preformed categories. Drawing on her background as an African-American of mixed heritage, Davis builds a strong message about the inability of labels to encapsulate the meaning of the whole. These works encourage the viewer to accept the plurality of life, coaxing a pattern that may seem chaotic to emerge as peaceful and harmonious by virtue of its very contrasts and dynamics.

The paintings of Lisa Corinne Davis have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States and Europe, and are included in many collections: The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J.Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Lisa’s work has been reviewed by The New York Times, Art in America and ArtNews. She is the recipient of numerous awards including The Louis Comfort Tiffany grant, a National Endowment for the Arts’ Visual Artist Fellowship, and two New York Foundation for the Arts, Visual Arts Fellowships. In addition, Lisa has taught art for the past fourteen years at Parsons School of Design, Cooper Union School of Art, Yale University, and currently as an Associate Professor at Hunter College in New York. Lisa lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
