Gerald Peters Gallery, New York, presents an exhibition of recent work by Lisa Corinne Davis. This will be Davis’s first solo exhibition with Gerald Peters Gallery, but her fourteenth in New York. Over the course of her distinguished career, Davis has painted abstractions, which adhere to the surface of the picture plane. Layered grids constitute the foundation of her compositions, which are punctuated by explosions of biomorphic color. The conjunction of these two distinctive approaches creates the tension in her paintings. Working with an aesthetic best described as the information sublime or a proliferation of data in our Digital Age, her paintings are refreshing and contemporary. Systems of order, bold patterning and map-like tropes signal the vast human imprint on the world around us. Yet, her paintings are never rigid. Rather they are energized by the chaos, pandemonium and recklessness of painted sections that defy the order of the grid.
