About Artist:

Paul Davies is an Australian-born, Los Angeles - based artist whose work is driven by friction between opposing forces of built and natural environments, design and art, abstraction and figuration. These boundaries and relationships are illustrated through his process, which combines painting, stencilling, photography and sculpture. The neutrality of Modernist architecture is a recurring subject in Davies work. Through a method of repetition and collage, these structures and surrounding landscapes obscure the viewer's sense of site and space. Davies employs stencils, hand-cut and derived from his own digital photographs and then applied in various mediums to challenge the viewer’s relationship with built environments. Davies’ work has been acquired by and exhibited at the University of California, Irvine, Institute and Museum of California Art, Scotts- dale Museum of Contemporary Art, Palm Springs Art Museum, Crocker Art Museum, MAK Center for Art and Architecture and the Laguna Art Museum. His work has been commissioned by the Soho House in Dumbo New York, Downtown Los Angeles, Barcelona, Mumbai and West Hollywood. In 2016 he completed a residency at The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture Phoenix and work from this is now in the permanent collection of the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery. In 2013, he was awarded a residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts, Paris by the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Davies was featured with Luc Tuymans and Peter Doig in an essay "Limbo Architecture - Painters of Modernism" by Aaron Betsky, Director of the Cincinnati Art Museum (2006 - 2014), for the May 2014 edition of Architecture Review. Davies has been included in 'Public Trust: It's About What We Do' and 'The Kindness of Strangers: Recent Acquisitions and Conservation Projects' both at the SMOCA, 'Condition Reports' curated by Ranjit Hoskote for India Art Fair, McClelland Collection' at the McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park.
