About the show:
Bringing together multiple bodies of work, spanning very recent and the inevitably lengthening past, artist Joanna Davis shows us how she carries a thread of connection in one hand and a brush in the other.
Natural wonders of the mind rise from landscapes in watercolor while collages act as hand drawn maps and ciphers to emotional destinations. Each piece is a part of a collective sojourn that individually we are familiar with, if we take the time to recognize it in ourselves.

Creating anything with our hands takes time, a variable degree of intention, and focus. When we allow ourselves the time to slow the passing of our days and call back the events that make them, we relive them, for better or worse. When Joanna mines these events she finds pockets of creative crystals. Much like the mineral, they are resilient even if sometimes fragmented, formed in irregular shapes- dictated by the pressure of their surroundings, and endlessly intriguing.

Joanna’s Neural Pathway series resonates like a singing bowl. The pieces speak to the thoughts we keep to ourselves as their sine wave circulates in our head. Thoughts of how we understand the world, and how in turn we are understood. Emotions that challenge us when we are at our most fragile, and our most resolute. Almost “automatic”, they feel unconcerned with their legibility. Instead they revel in their spontaneity
Walls and Formations is a series that exists in the abstract. Floating islands and land masses hang in the negative space, bound only by their surface’s physical boundaries. These landscapes have all the serenity of walking alone in a sunbathed field and amongst the shade of trees, the raw fury and indiscriminate consumption of wildfire, along with the blackened aftermath.

Shifting the lens in which we look through into one that finds metaphor, one could arrive at many. Abundance and drought, the search for ourselves within ourselves, how we connect to the environments around us, and the people who occupy them with us.
