A Minnesota native, Jennifer Davis discovered her passion for painting and drawing while studying at the University of Minnesota, from where she graduated with a BFA degree in Drawing and Painting. Davis’ paintings have a surreal, candy-land exterior of innocent charm which only hint at an undercurrent of darker truths. Her acrylic paintings contain a mysterious yet familiar language of invented symbols which continually grow, repeat, and change.
This new series of paintings / drawings on paper contain many of the usual creepy critters, smiling freaks, and spindly trees we’ve grown to love in Jennifer’s work, but with a new sense of playful experimentation in scale, medium, technique, and bold colors.

March 27th also marks Jennifer’s birthday, so come and celebrate!
