Vaughn Davis Jr.
Vaughn Terrell Davis, Jr. characterizes his artworks as forms of circumstance, with each object becoming a documentation of its moment in time. Using mediums like paint, performance, video, and clay, he both creates and destroys in an abstract process as he develops metaphors for our lived experience. He builds upon the tenets of Abstract Expressionism but thinks about painting as a more expanded form. Ultimately his tattered, distressed, and deconstructed artworks offer subtle yet poignant statements about art’s role in a society undergoing dramatic change.
