Carolina Galleries in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Julyan Davis
New paintings by Julyan Davis will be the focus of a show at Carolina Galleries at its new location on Church Street in Charleston, SC, on view from Oct. 5 - 19, 2007.
Davis is an English-born artist who now resides permanently in the South. He was born in 1965 and received his art training at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London. In 1988, having completed his BA in painting and printmaking, he traveled to the South on a painting trip that was also fueled by an interest in the history of Demopolis, AL, and its settling by Bonapartist exiles. This interest in Alabama's early history brought him initially to Tuscaloosa. Now a resident of North Carolina, Davis is known for his paintings of Western North Carolina, the Maine coast and the Low Country of Georgia and South Carolina. He also paints portraits and still lifes.
Davis works on both plein air and studio pieces.
After years of traditional realism, his work has more recently
begun to explore aspects of modernism resulting in paintings that
combine traditional techniques such as glazing with an emphasis
on the abstract qualities of his subject. His work is in many
private and corporate collections. Having already been featured
in the Citizen-Times and The Laurel - both in Asheville,
NC, Davis has an upcoming article in Garden & Gun magazine.
In addition to specializing in the art of the Charleston Renaissance, Carolina Galleries also features contemporary paintings celebrating the region's continuing aesthetic evolution. A walk through the gallery, which has been widely featured in major national magazines, is equivalent to a journey through time, with works on display spanning from the 1850s to the present. Landscapes and genre scenes represent two centuries in Charleston art, with a primary focus on nineteenth and twentieth century masterpieces.
