PUSH
NEW WORKS BY
JENNIFER DAVEY AND SUSAN M. GIBBONS

Jennifer Davey has an almost poetic approach to her paintings, much like a haiku, there is a minimalist elegance to her compositions. Through her work she explores concepts of life and death, peace and love, as they relate to today's society. Her paintings are chaotic yet serene, complex yet surprisingly straight forward.






Artist Statement
Peace - Love. Words that push, pull and play with our deepest and purest desires. These concepts inspire yet are sometimes difficult to embody. In this body of work I explore the ideas of peace and love when coming to terms with the "wild self" and our life-death-life nature. The paintings explore these rhythms of life, the rise and fall, and the push and the pu…

Things are gearing up for my show next month!  I'm almost finished creating the work and wanted again to show you all details of some of the pieces.  The Adam Series is based on the creation story in the book of Genesis where God makes Adam out of the clay/dirt.  I've incorporated dirt in each piece to symbolize the union of God's hand and humankind plus bringing in an actual representation of the earth itself.  I've used the basic colors of the human skin - red, black, brown, yellow, white to loosely represent humankind.

I will be exhibiting with Jennifer Davey, whose abstract works are wonderful!  I'm very excited to be apart of this exhibit!!!

The works will be exhibited at POINT Gallery, 765 Santa Fe, Denver, CO opening June 5, 2015.  So come down on First Friday and check it out!

Been having a blast in the studio with my Adam Series and it's coming together, getting ready for the show in June at POINT Gallery in Denver, CO!  Wanted to share a sneak peak of what's to come for the exhibit.  As of now, there will be 15 - 8"x 8", 5 - 6"x 36", and 5-30"x 40" - 25 pieces in all.  Lots of work but lots of fun too!

Come check out these pieces.  Some are details and some are full shots of the work.  I'm finding that adding the dirt to the work really brings out the depth and alters the way, creating some very interesting textures and colors to it.  I couldn't be more thrilled!

I hope you enjoy them.  And...  if you're in Denver on June 5, come by the gallery for the opening:  765 Santa Fe, Denver, CO.  Hope to see you there!!!
