The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Noah Davis' current exhibition at Roberts & Tilton in Los Angeles, called "The Missing Link," features murky clues in piercing colors, filling in gaps for memories and mysteries.
In Davis's world, faces are obscured by dark gobs of pigment while fedoras are sharp as ever, giving the canvases a folk-film noire twang. The 30-year-old is known for his art historical literacy, incorporating influences that date back to James Ensor and Balthus....
With popping hues and a dark sense of humor, Davis gives viewers clues without context -- missing links to an unknown narrative.
The show runs until March 30. Roberts & Tilton Gallery is located at 5801 Washington Blvd.
