Having recently moved to Colorado, Alissa Davies’ current show examines the complexity of repositioning oneself in new environments, new communities, and new situations. The longing for the familiar home paired with the growth that comes from moving somewhere new, Cultivation conveys the myriad of feelings that occur with relocation.
Davies is interested in the ways that the art-making process reveals effective methods and tools for navigating the life-making process. The messages include and are not limited to: staying open to the unknown, staying with the ugly stages of a painting (and of life), being curious and exploratory, relishing in beauty and harmony, risking, and knowing when to stop.
Davies’ paintings emerge from an intuitive place, intermingling with knowledge of color theory, composition, and painting techniques. Each piece is generated spontaneously, taking cues from her inner world. As a painting progresses she is interested in the interplay of form and the harmony of colors, while staying true to the organic forming of shapes and textures. Play, experimentation, movement and curiosity guide her process.
