Gene Davis

A portrait of the artist Gene Davis, a “singleidea” painter whose stripe paintings emphasize color and space. Davis began painting stripes in 1958 because “it seemed a very outrageous thing to do.” He continues because, in the intervening years, he has found different motives for his work that have enabled him to retain a changing perspective on stripes. The purpose of Gene Davis’ work is best summed up in his own words: “For fifteen years they have held my attention and, believe me, when the day arrives that they do not hold my attention, I will do something else, but, I’ve only begun to tap the surface.”
