ALONZO DAVIS / artist
The rich portfolio of Alonzo Davis, an African-American artist, uses paint, bamboo, copper, leather, indigenous textiles and mixed media to reflect the magic of the Southwest United States, Brazil, Haiti, West Africa and the Pacific Rim in works which are installed in public, corporate and personal art collections.
I work in series, which includes woven paintings and prints. The creative springboards for these are elements of quilts, hides and indigenous textiles. The bamboo "Power Poles" and sculptures, my most recent series, are paintings in the round that I embellish with color, wax, copper, leather, twine and burned-in patterns.
My art choices and world views have been inspired by travel. Through travel, I seek influences, cultural centers, energies, new terrain and the power of both the spoken and unspoken. The magic of the Southwest United States, Brazil, Haiti and West Africa has penetrated my work. Southern California, home for thirty years, has also had an indelible impact and the colors and rhythms of the Pacific Rim continue to infiltrate.
