This piece shows the transition from hotel balcony to beach to the ocean. Though it's in a midcentury style it depicts the contemporary kite boarders whose sails have a Calder/Miro feel.

This piece is on plywood and coated in an epoxy resin which gives it an extremely lustrous and glossy surface that doesn't really show in the photos. Moreover, there are some minor 'imperfections' in the coating that result from the process but that do not effect either the aesthetics or the images stability. 

The painting wraps around the edges of the wood, and the work comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Joe

Each of Joe Davis’ paintings excites the eye with a distinctive liveliness. His bright color palette gives his compositions a fantastical warmth and playfulness. Joe explores the ways that an overhead perspective can render everyday scenes into marvelous abstraction. Kites, sails, and umbrellas become super simplified forms that seem to almost dissolve into the scene, elevating each canvas with glamor and sophistication. These abstracted forms evade minute details in a way that resembles the joys of reminiscing. His paintings have a lighthearted mood that fondly recall happy days spent at the beach.
