by Anna U Davis
September 26 - October 27, 2019
new work by local Swedish American artist Anna U Davis.
Anna is known for her bold, colorful, graphic mixed-media work, where she explores her fascination with gender relations. She was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in 2015 for her project "Road to Recovery," which is currently being turned into a documentary.
Davis work has been shown in the United States and internationally, most recently at the 13th Havana Biennial in Cuba.
Anna's latest work explores sociopolitical themes and behavioral changes due to the effects of our surrounding enviroment. The topics are carried out by her characteristic “Frocasian” figures. The figures which were inspired by Anna's interracial relationship with her husband, her son DeWilde, and living in the US for many years.
In 2019 Anna has expanded her repertoire to include a clothing brand, Frocasian, with a few pieces available as part of the exhibition.
We hope you enjoy the show!
