DYADS, an installation by Adam Davis
September 5- October 3, 2015
Actual Size is pleased to present Dyads, a mixed media installation by Adam Davis. Davis’ works explore the intricacies of access, love, desire and loss. Through sculpture, photography and video, he directs the viewer toward unfamiliar landscapes, rendered with humor and empathy.
Composed of ceramic anchors, rope, and faux taxidermic birds, Dyads traverses the gallery space from floor to rafters, presenting the viewer with a set of unusual avian interactions that invoke mysterious, yet specific relationships.
Davis’ work has been featured in numerous national and international solo and group exhibitions, and he has participated in Artist-In-Residence programs at the Kathmandu Contemporary Arts Center in Kathmandu, Nepal; Bait Makan in Amman, Jordan; Homesession in Barcelona, Spain; Sculpture Space in Utica, New York; Svenska Konstskolans Vänner in Nykarleby, Finland; Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder in Trondheim, Norway; The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana.
Davis received his BS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1995, and his MFA in 1999 from The University of Arizona. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California, where in addition to his professional studio practice he is an Associate Professor of Art at Scripps College.
