Davis presents a new collection of works across varieties of scale from his Blackamoors Collages series, pieces in which base patterns of carefully inlaid laser-cut plexiglass activate a superimposed level of laser-cut figures of significant cultural weight, composed again of plexiglass, connected by a variety of metallic screws, bolts, and nuts. The aesthetic of these new works conflates the pattern language of African textiles with the visual language of race as expressed in contemporary American political culture.
