“Each piece was mounted on the end of a wire, giving it a somewhat mechanical feel, but together they created a kind of whimsey that felt to me like the playfulness of Paul Klee’s paintings, which I greatly admire,” shares Davis. “The lines, shapes, and colors are disparate but work together in a sort of poetic harmony. It was quite a small but wonderful change for me and my work.”
