” I tear up books, slice into my old woodblock prints, and cut my drawings out of the paper they’re drawn on. The destruction is disquieting but also liberating- there are wonderful possibilities to be found in these colorful pieces of paper.
Usually each piece of art resolves itself in a manner that I didn’t foresee and didn’t even think was possible.”

“Minneapolis-based painter Jennifer Davis possesses a highly developed sensibility for pattern and color, creating an almost tangible world of strange creatures that seem to live and breathe, despite their simplified forms.”
