Tim Davis

Tim Davis’s signature portrait style leaves the faces blank without expression to let the viewer see more through the form, line, and color. “Painting on an unconventional surface such as Plexiglas, I utilize the transparent and reflective quality with various materials, such as graphite, sculpture materials, acrylic, photography, pen and ink, and re-assemble and tell stories of [the] human spirit,” he says. Concerned for the human experience and the Black experience, his depicted subjects are based on people he met throughout his life.
