Andrew Perry Davis: Time of the Mouse
April 5 - 28, 2018
Collectors' Night - April 5, 5 pm - 8 pm
First Friday Art Tour - April 6, 6 pm - 9 pm
Clay sculptor Andrew Perry Davis looks for the absurd in the everyday. Inspired by his first job working in a flea market, his favorite flea market finds were ones that defied quick or easy interpretation. Artifacts and antique toys inspire many of the forms he sculpts in his art practice. Alongside ceramic vessels that reference an unusual mix of time periods and cultures, you will find more intimate sculptures that reference a more recent past in the form of well-worn plush dolls. Traveling through this alternate history you will find statues of animal gods, commemorative vessels, and petrified carnival prizes blending the familiar with the historical. Elements that at first seem to be contradictory are a prompt for the viewer to play with their own references and interpretations.
