NEW YORK, NEW YORK – MILES McENERY GALLERY is pleased to announce representation of Lisa Corinne Davis.

Lisa Corinne Davis is a Brooklyn-based visual artist whose paintings and works on paper encompass intricate layers of color and forms to communicate her lived experience through abstraction. The artist’s paintings weave two phenomenons of abstraction: rigid, geometric lines and systematic, measured grids against bodily shapes and organic applications of oil paint. She coalesces the logical and visceral until the composition reaches a degree of complexity and intricacy, reminiscent of maps and pathways.

With an interest in the malleability of information and knowingness, the work evokes the structures and narratives of locations. The compositions create a visual space for the viewer, “internal, external, maximal, liminal, imaginative, or measured spaces,” that allow multiple points of entry without settling on one specific area.

Davis earned the distinguished fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation in 2022. Her work is included in various notable collections including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England, and Yale University, New Haven, CT.

LISA CORINNE DAVIS (b. 1958 in Baltimore, MD) received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, New York, NY and her Master of Fine Arts from Hunter College, New York, NY. Since 1993, Davis has held teaching positions at some of the most prestigious art schools in the United States; and is currently the Co-MFA Director at Hunter College. Davis is a member of the National Academy of Design and a 2022 Guggenheim Fellow in the Fine Arts.

Davis’ work has been included in group exhibitions at the American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, NY; The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY; Dieu Donné Papermill, New York, NY; Flint Institute of The Arts, Flint, MI; Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, NY; New York Studio School, New York, NY; Schloss Plüschow, Uphal, Germany; Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York, NY; and the Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln, NE, among others.
