Finally, a long awaited solo show by a promising young artist to kick off the second half of the season. False Front presents Flanks and Slopes by Zachary Davis
Davis has been a stand out in several group shows but it is time to see how sustained his practice can be? His solo show last year took place in Philadelphia but received critical praise.
Here is some of the PR:
"Form is a voracious concept, beginning somewhere in the front of my brain, where teams of cells replace flat swaths of stimulus from the back of the eye with semantic notions like edge, texture, and depth. In schematic, these transmuting units are funnelshaped, and zooming out, the shape remains a funnel, with sensory overload crashing against the wide end and a thin stream of physical actions on the other.
Along with other perceived objects, this funnel-form guides my actions on a field of possibility with its own contours. If the shape of tomorrow's weather forecast has enough reality to guide my actions (rainfall by time by latitude by longitude), or the upward trajectory of food prices (by time by latitude by longitude), then the correlation of many such forms (food price by rainfall by time by latitude by longitude) is similarly real. Pull in enough metrics, and we find ourselves on a landscape of goals and dangers, shrouded
