Pour-painting is an exercise of setting intentions, accepting the unexpected and knowing when to quit. Its color and composition, simultaneously simple and complex. I must consider the opaque or translucent properties of the colors, how different brands may react to one another, the viscosity of the mixtures and so much more. Once it is time to pour there is a sense of urgency. Finally, there is the unexpected result. All of the calculations complete, and paint poured, I am often left with results better than imagined.
– Kimberly Davis
For Kimberly Davis, every painting is its own little journey. A native of Oxnard without formal training, Davis has honed her craft alongside the city itself – friends, family, diversity in her community, and the beauty of the surrounding nature have all contributed to an emerging artistic sensibility. Her early works varied in form and function; from collage assemblages in open-call exhibitions to public murals at local high schools. Landscapes and other works inspired by nature soon followed. Today, pour-painting finds itself at the fore of the artist’s style.
