Jennifer Davis’ Surreal, Cotton-Candy-Colored Paintings

Jennifer Davis

Jen­nifer Davis is a Minnesota-based artist whose sur­real por­traits reflect a highly selec­tive color palette and sim­pli­fied way of draw­ing. I find them unusual and beau­ti­ful as they mix flora, ani­mals, and cre­ate hybrid creatures.

If you’re local to Min­neapo­lis, Min­nesota, Davis has a new show, Joyride, at Pub­lic Func­tionary until April 25th. The work included in the show is the result of a 8-cities-in-8-days road trip that Davis took in 2013 to research and doc­u­ment vin­tage Amer­ica carousels. Addi­tion­ally, it’s inspired by the ride’s iconic horses as well as clas­sic carousel vignette paint­ings. I’ve included a few images from the show, but check more out here. It looks incredible.
