TM Davy

TM Davy (b. 1980, U.S.A.) lives and works in New York City. Davy works primarily from life, allowing the act of painting to be a direct engagement with intimate relationships and personal meaning. Within this practice, light is observed and depicted as a conceptual describer of form and feeling. His most recent body of work, Candela, engages the candle as a source and system for understanding light as weighed by the spectral sensitivity of the human eye. Through this unit of perception, histories, loves, domesticity, nature, space, and inner spaces are explored. Davy has exhibited in solo shows at Eleven Rivington, New York City (2010); Exile, Berlin (2011); and Liste, Basel (2012). Recent group shows include exhibitions at Susanne Tarasieve Gallery, Paris (2012); ARos Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus (2011); Leonard Natman Room, New York City (2011); Tate Modern, London (2010); and Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela (2010). In 2002, he received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York City.
