For the culmination of her residency at OXY ARTS, and in her first institutional exhibition in Los Angeles, Kenturah Davis presents a solo show of work that illuminates the significance of shadows in our sensory experience.

Drawing inspiration from Jun’ichiro Tanizaki’s classic text, In Praise of Shadows, Davis explores the premise that shadows and darkness do not just produce conditions that conceal, but that they can also reveal and illuminate. Using photography, printmaking, installation and hybrid sculptural forms, Davis experiments with various modalities that interrogate the nature of the contingent relationship between shadow and light. Her practice extends to questions and explorations that help unpack social and cultural conventions and hierarchies, and consider ideas rooted in philosophy, physics, literature and anthropology.
