“In her often delicate, formal sculptures, Karin Davis engages with tangible materials as a way to connect with and know the world. Her approach to art is rooted in the experience of sensory pleasure and delight; both in the process of making and the nature of the finished work. Her pieces frequently exist in the realm of the humble and awkward, teetering between form and formlessness, made and unmade. While embodying the touch of the artist’s hand, they also present the possibility of having made themselves.”
Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Davis received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She currently works toward her MFA at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
