C. Dawn Davis

C. Dawn Davis creates figurative mixed-media paintings in which her female subjects, posed in elaborate costumes and sometimes wearing masks, gaze back mysteriously at the viewer. Often these figures are accompanied by birds or monkeys, creating an eerie, arresting effect. Painted in the tradition of classical paintings, Ms. Davis’s work is as astounding for its technical genius as it is for its fascinating subjects.
