Jose Dávila: The Elephant and the Feather

Jose Dávila: The Elephant and the Feather:

Opening Reception Friday May 6th at 6 pm

5/6 - 9/4/16 View Exhibit

 

Jose Dávila is that rare novelty: a contemporary artist who revels in the direct experience of art, unpolluted by academia or the marketplace. The landscape he creates with this current series of work, provokes a multilevel discourse, complete and unedited. His objects assume a notion of the totemic; upright, personable and each stabilized by a concealed tension. There is an appealing dichotomy of humanistic qualities that counterpart each sculpture: The opposed bodies that equalize their forces in order to form stability; the risk of imbalance and the propagation of weight that constitutes substance. Yet behind each aura of equipoise, one can prevue vulnerability.
