On Wednesday, April 29 we had a live online chat with Chicago artist Joe Davis about his engaging work and took questions. Click here to watch the video.
The original purpose of the wire was connected to the ranching business in West Texas. Joe started saving it a couple of years ago, and eventually some of it ended up displayed on the walls of his home. More recently, he has been manipulating it to make other shapes such as cubes and rectangles. He’s re-bent it to make representational wall figures, and he has been working on a continuing series of graphite drawings.
The exhibition of Joe’s work in our gallery has been held over to May 15. Although the Gallery is currently closed to visitors, selected pieces from the exhibition are available to view online. All works shown are for sale.
