Charles A. Hartman Fine Art is excited to present Hometown, the newest body of work by Portland-based artist Rachel Davis. In elegant watercolor paintings that are both quiet and assertive, curious and compelling, Davis approaches recent transformations in China through the unique prism of a parent of two adopted Chinese daughters. Her work depicts a landscape in transition, melding traditional and modern structures to create images that are as beautiful as they are intellectually captivating. Davis' exquisitely rendered paintings are both a meditation on the past and an invitation to a conversation about the ramifications of rapid change in contemporary China.
Rachel Davis was born in 1970 in Cambridge, England and went on to earn a BFA from the University of Michigan School of Art. Her work has been exhibited across the United States, and is included in many noted private and corporate collections.
