Stuart Davis’ paintings honor Eastern Zen influences while using a maverick Western approach. These works feature a unique form of micro-calligraphy in Stuart’s own constructed language, called “IS” (a present-tense infinite Verb). Stuart has been engineering this language for years, which employs innovative forms of syntax and semantics. Stu considers it an experiment in perspectives, but it’s also the focal point in his numerous paintings. Alternating between fire and paint, he creates crows and Buddhas inscribed with hyper-detailed phrases and poems in his language.
