I art-sit at daas gallery and today I was surrounded by the work of Matthew Davis; if you're in Fort Myers you should check his exhibit out! Some of it is what I call Retro Mixed media. He incorporates old newspaper and magazine pieces as a background and lays his subject carefully on top. The colors are soft yet strongly placed. Some of his work is done with a free spirit a cool pallette and a heavy black sharpie. Some mirror his faith. As I studied his work moving from picture to picture I sensed that this artist is a happy, balanced person at least in his "art heart, " my personal phrase for what is true in your soul that comes out in one's art, these qualities resonate! I truly believe that bringing his work into ones home would cast a spell of lightheartedness upon all who reside within.
Most of all it made me want to pull my paints out... bye.
