The Twins is a portrait of the artist’s twins. Davis has a lifetime’s history in the arts, drawing as a child, following his parents around museums, and making rudimentary sketches of the old masters. He watched his father draw and discovered early the doorway to parallel worlds scrawled into notebooks. Drawing served as a way forward when it seemed there was none. From drawing came painting. Davis’s work skates along a crumbly edge between autobiography and the fantastic, examining those places where the pleasure and burden of the body intersect with the lightness of dreams and nightmares.
