Although magnificent flowers and landscapes are the main choice for his compositions, Brian Davis explains, "The actual job of making an arresting piece of art has nothing to do with what the thing is." Brian transforms exquisite blossoms like roses, calla lilies, and dahlias into romantic, compelling images with sharpness, color, movement, edge and light.

Before he begins his artistic journey on canvas, Brian combs the fields and gardens near his Los Angeles home for a flower or scene that catches his eye. He carries a camera everywhere so he can shoot a subject at any moment. Since flowers wilt so quickly, and it can take weeks to complete a painting, he has found a way to create a floral image from a series of different shots for each flower. He may not do an exact botanical rendering and he changes colors and leaves at will.

Brian believes that the depth in his art is derived from paying attention to the subtle shifts in value - relative dark and light. He is often asked if there is a light source behind his paintings. "The light is the real subject of my work. The flower is the state, the light is the dancer." Using two hanging mirrors to view the unfinished painting at all angles, Brian works daily in his studio surrounded by books, music, and historical videos.

Brian is a true artist with vast understanding and knowledge of art. "My art, like all art, is at its core a form of communication that is not easily translated into words - good art transcends words." It is his hope that viewers look at his works and respond, for then they are hearing his voice, understanding his concept of what is worth creating. His paintings are a fascinating group of images that allow the viewer to feel and recognize the nature of light - the essence of a Brian Davis painting.
