Tim Davis • Mar. 4, 2010
Tim Davis is a photographer and poet whose ironic reflections on contemporary life, in both images and words, carry biting wit, sharp commentary, and a great and playful joissance. In love with and seduced by the surfaces of the madcap commonplace, Davis's color photography depicts an incendiary and protean consumer culture. As Miles Champion wrote in review of his poetry volume, American Whatever, "Tim Davis' idea factory is open 24-7, tossing out paint chips in whatever color you want, as long as it's frosted cocktail cherry." The same words could be used to describe his vibrant and mordant photographs.
Davis studied at Bard College and Yale University and currently teaches photography at Bard College. His work has appeared in numerous one person and group exhibitions and has received numerous prizes, including the prestigious Rome Prize in 2007-2008. He is represented by GreenbergVan Doren Gallery, New York. Website
