A few months ago, I posted some work by Christopher Davison, a Philadephia based artist with an amazing style and subject matter that tends to abduct your senses. (in a good way) Deservedly so, Mr. Davison has a new solo exhibition called Tabernacle, opening at the Nicelle Beauchene Gallery in New York City beginning in late July through August. The piece in the invite (above) is considerably brighter in tone and subject matter and certainly befits the exhibition's name which means "a sanctuary for worship." (or a receptacle for the consecrated elements of the Eucharist) Considering the predominant use of demons/devils and dark imagery in Davison's previous work, perhaps this show represents a new direction for the artist, or simply another side in the world of good/evil. Looking forward to it.
