Gene Davis (1920-1985)

?



Gene Davis is known primarily for the stripe works that span twenty-seven years, but he was a versatile artist who worked in a variety of formats and media. From modular compositions consisting of discrete, but relate, pieces that together form one composition to collages combining cutout fragments of images and text with painted and drawn elements, and Klee-inspired images that resemble musical scores and silhouette self-portraits. Davis's works range from micro-paintings to mammoth outdoor street paintings.
