Knoxville Museum of Art Highlights Work of Tim Davis

KNOXVILLE, TN.- The Knoxville Museum of Art highlights photographs from modern-day luminist Tim Davis as part of its SubUrban series March 23 through July 8, 2007. New York photographer Tim is concerned with light and his desire to “picture” light in its various manifestations. In Permanent Collection, the series featured at the KMA, Davis photographs famous paintings from museum collections. He then prints them almost actual size so that they become a representation of the original work. However, it is the reflection of light off the surface of the paintings that pinpoints the difference between the actual painting and photograph. The glare that Davis captures on the paintings’ surfaces provides the paintings with an unexpected luminescence that adds to and sometimes changes the energy of the piece by obscuring one’s view of the painting.

Davis received degrees from Bard College in New York and Yale University . His work has been featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times Magazine, ArtForum, and Art in America; and is in the collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum , and The Walker Art Center, among others.

The artist discusses his work at a gallery talk at 6pm Thursday, March 21. This event is open to the public and is free with museum admission.

The Tim Davis exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The SubUrban series is made possible with the generous assistance of the Lucille S. Thompson Family Foundation through its ongoing support of new initiatives at the museum.
