Gesture By John Davis

Gesture By John Davis


Original Bronze Sculpture

12 inches  x 5 inches x 3 inches

Edition: 5

I like the movement and the simplicity of the design in this piece. I chose not to add a lot of detail because it would not have added to the quality of the work. I think that is what makes creating art so interesting. As the artist I get to choose what to leave in and what to leave out. If I feel like I’ve said what is necessary I know at that point I can stop and the work is completed.

Product Description

Artist John DavisJohn Davis was born in North Carolina in 1969. His mother was an art teacher and encouraged him to pursue art as a child. In 1992 he moved to Fort Worth, Texas and soon found a renewed interest in art. He began to study drawing and painting with local artists such as Ron Cheek from the Florence Academy of Art, Jonathan Hardesty, and Blair Currin.

In 2000, he began to study wood sculpting with Master wood sculptor Ludwig Kieninger. During this time he created western based works in wood such as Native American busts, cowboy boots, and animals. His interest gradually shifted to include the human form in the classical tradition. The works of Lorenzo Bernini captured his attention, especially the clay sketches. He loved the spontaneity , the movement, and the impressionistic feel of those pieces. He transitioned at that point to a new medium. The clay was so malleable in comparison to the wood and felt like the perfect medium.

In 2012, Davis cast his first figurative piece and in 2014 completed his first life size commissioned sculpture. His work is now in private collections in Fort Worth, Austin, Dallas, and North Carolina.
