Easton Davy’s work is often based off of blues notes and jazz riffs, lyrics that speak to the heart of what it is to be human. His work reflects the day-to-day, the blues and jazz scenes, and harkens to the African-American Diaspora. Davy is a painter that works with bold color, and also uses collage and found materials in his work.
Kortez uses reclaimed materials and objects and mixes them with a deep sense of emotion, bold and bright colors to create art. Collages, one of his favorite art mediums, tell of social injustices such as racism, poverty, war, and police brutality. Using news clippings and photographs to tell a story, he then adds brush strokes of color to complete the work. His other works include paintings that reflect the faces and people that have lined the fabric of his life.
The exhibition ties together the common boundaries (a theme that Davy has carried throughout his career in one form or another) of these two artists.
Both artists are based in New Jersey.
