Davis McLane Connelly
On View Through January 27
We Welcomed 100 People to The Fridge this past Saturday for the opening reception of Davis Connelly's Individuation. Davis draws iconographic stuffed toys, anthropomorphic animals, and figures in various states of physical maturity to engage nostalgic and curious viewers in a dialogue concerning the regret of lost youth and the struggle for personal expression.
Davis says, "I want to make work that is visually accessible, and I believe it’s important for everyone to be able to form their own interpretation of my work. I aim to make my drawings aesthetically pleasing so that they appeal to a wide range of viewers. Beyond the immediate aesthetics, there are references to greater topics. For example, the words on a magazine, the direction in which light is cast, or the arrangement of the composition will hold clues to a deeper meaning."
