Fabien Castanier Gallery is proud to present Brokedown Palace, a solo exhibition for contemporary Miami-based artist, Jon Davis. The exhibition is on view September 18 - October 16, and will begin with an all day opening reception.
Jon Davis presents his most recent body of work as an homage to the city he calls home. Throughout Brokedown Palace, images capturing “moments” of Miami are fractured, stratified, and presented through a renewed understanding of not only the space they represent, but as they currently exist within each seamless rendering. After undergoing a year-long distillation period, this most recent body of work expresses the culmination of Davis’s practice over the past 30 years.
Through the duration of his artistic career, Davis’s self-taught practice has created his distinctly unique visual language, pulling inspiration from the philosophical, and ensuing formal, evolution of the arts in the late twentieth century. Davis’s work can be understood as a personal rendition of ready-mades, as he transforms present happenings provided by his surroundings through each synthesized reality contained within panes of glass. In this, Davis uses skills of everyday life to reflect a higher creative culture.
