Known for his magnificent flowers, Brian Davis transforms exquisite blossoms like roses, calla lilies, and dahlias into romantic, compelling images with sharpness, color, movement, edge, and light. Brian believes that the great depth in his art is derived from his paying great attention to the subtle shifts in value (relative dark and light). He is often asked if there is a light source behind his paintings making them look so lit up. "The light is the real subject of my work. The flower is the stage, the light is the dancer." Greatly influenced by the Dutch Masters, along with the artists of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco, Brian is inspired by images of highly stylized renditions of birds and flowers and their intensity of color achieved by many, many layers of paint.
A native Californian, born into a family of musician parents in 1946, Brian loved art all his life. Formally educated in Fine Art at Pierce College and California State University-Los Angeles. The perfection of the Nineteenth-Century French painting technique, called "pouchoir: gave Brian instant recognition as a serious painter and Master Print Maker. Since the early eighties Brian's focus on oil paintings and the further refining of his "value painting" techniques brought his body of work to new heights of artistic expression and perfection. Brian is a true artist with a vast understanding and knowledge of art. His cerebral view of paintings causes him to say, "My art, like all art, is at its core a form of communication that is not easily translated into words - good art transcends words."
His latest editions are a fascinating group of images that allow the viewer to feel and recognize the light, the essence of a Brian Davis piece. Brian's work hangs in museums and private collections around the world.
