Rick Rhodes Photography & Imaging, LLC in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Ron Rocz and Nancy Santos

Helena Fox Fine Art LLC in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, A Southern Edge: Recent Works by Julyan Davis, on view from Mar. 1 - 31, 2012. A reception will be held on Mar. 1, from 5-8pm.

This exhibition explores the artist’s passion for southern landscape and architecture. His ability to capture the fragile balance between the historical past and urban sprawl of the present has come to represent our changing South.

Davis is English born, and moved to the South over 20 years ago, captivated by the ever-changing southern landscape he now calls home. He 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 inspired by an interest in the history of Demopolis, Alabama and its settling by Bonapartist exiles.

After years of traditional realism Davis’ work has evolved to incorporate 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, public and corporate collections including the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, the Greenville County Museum of Art in Greenville, SC, and the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, GA.
