A resident of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Davis’ paintings aim to uncover and uplift the discarded and overlooked within his urban surroundings. The city’s rich history and character manifest themselves in the architecture and inhabitants of his daily life, thus providing the platform for his work. The quiet power in layers of decay gives insight into the city’s past, forming a residue of existence that inspires his imagery. Through sensitive and careful construction, he utilizes methods of traditional oil painting as well as an aesthetic that pulls from American painters such as John Sloan, Edward Hopper, and Thomas Eakins.
