Alonzo Davis is an artist who successfully brings a wide angle, panoramic view of the world to all the work he creates. Building exuberant raft-like works from a variety of materials including bamboo, sailcloth, paper, twine, wax, paint and light, Davis alludes to many things, including both his childhood along the windy shores of Southern California and the stick charts of Micronesia he encountered during a lifetime of open-eyed, curiosity driven world travel. A love of patterns, bright color and an embrace of low-tech construction techniques is central to the improvisational look and the feel of these works. But a long career as a gallerist, educator and artist also bring a practiced and sure hand and a deft feel for the structural, compositional and interactive bedrock each piece is founded on. These works are unique, dynamic and immediately relevant.
