Matthew Namour Gallery is thrilled to be hosting Mike Davis’ latest solo show in Montreal. Davis renders complex paintings embedded with symbols of mortality, folly, and hubris in the style of the Netherlandish Flemish Primitives such as Bosch, Bruegel and van Eyck.
His oil paintings create an alternate world where anything is possible; combining arcane personal symbols with social commentary. His work depicts a world of myth and colliding timeframes, a land “on the other side of the bridge,” but one that resonates with our own—not as memory but as a dream.
