Mitch Davis-Mann
Dundas, Ontario, Canada
Artist Mitch Davis-Mann creates luminous, dream-like seascapes and landscapes. Amazingly, he paints many of his meditative scenes while also working on an assembly line at one of the biggest automotive manufacturing plants. We build 500 to 650 cars per day per shift, and in between building those cars I have 35 or so seconds, says Mitch. Build one car, run over, add a detail with those 35 seconds, then rush back to the next car. On a typical workday, Mitch spends almost five hours in front of the canvas. In the beginning, he says it was a frustrating process, where he would lose his place constantly and by the time he remembered what he was working on, the next car would arrive. It eventually became a rhythm though, and now it keeps him focused in the factory. When he's not working, Mitch enjoys traveling, mountain biking and playing in a darts league every Thursday. His work has been exhibited in galleries in Canada and the United States, a local museum show, and on loan to the legislative assembly building in Toronto.

Artist Statement

My work is born through my dreams, weighted experience, and introspection. My practice intends to invoke the same emotional state in the viewer that I was in while creating the work. I build texture through many layers of transparent oil paint. This process allows the elusive properties of light to shine through each layer creating a luminous glow. What I am seeking is to not create a photorealistic painting but rather a living, breathing depiction, regardless of the subject matter. While retaining a mysterious quality, and leading the viewer with limited direction, I hope to inspire people to look more carefully at the world that surrounds them.
