Ian Davis
Doledrum ( Industrial Environmental Pollution

2006

$28,000

About

Out of many come one. A huge back mountain is formed out of scores of gas spewing smokestacks. The foreboding back mass fills most of the pictorial area. As one gets closer to the canvas, the complexity of the mass if revealed in low on contrast as we see the diverse variety of the stacks with accompanying petrochemical architecture. Above the stacks, plums of air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides rise gracefully into the atmosphere. The artist focuses less on the by-product of the stacks and more on his giant pollution machine that he has so astutely rendered. The work is mostly monochromatic but the artist has indicted a red tonality of a sunset/sunrise that offsets the charcoal blacks and grays. ______________________________________________ Submitted by Tamarind Institute Ian Davis is a Los Angeles-based painter whose work is rooted in meticulous, intricate drawing. His open-ended narratives take place within in a looming apocalypse, where crowds of conforming male subjects gather around a spectacle or an impending disaster of some kind, each outfitted in identical business suits or lab coats. The assembly of experts, seemingly earnest, yet motionless, communicates the collective anxiety of contemporary society. The multi-colored print Black Balloons, for example, references the current opioid epidemic and the Black Balloon Tribute that has spread internationally to call attention to the crisis. Throughout his work Davis turns his keen observation and dark humor to the systemic cultural failings that shape the human condition. Davis had his first Tamarind residency in summer 2017
