Samara Gallery presents Richard Davison: "New Landscapes" opening reception
Samara Gallery will present "New Landscapes," a solo exhibition by Richard Davison. Paintings and drawings presented in exhibit represents a body of work that has accumulated over the past 6 to 8 years. Each painting has taken six months to two years to complete.
The paintings in this exhibition are inspired by artists who were essentially regionalists. The work of Samuel Palmer, Camille Corot, Claude Monet, Charles Burchfield, and others was such that, while their work was certainly innovative in the landscape genre, it never stopped being about the beauty “in their own back yards”.Similarly, while the paintings here attempt to be “transportive;” to convey a sense of the visionary by virtue of their scale and color, etc., they are also images of central Texas; stock ponds and yaupons.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 28.
