RICHARD THOMAS DAVIS
Davis' strict accuracy in drawing and modeling, his meticulous fidelity to surface textures and colors, and his masterly arrangement of compositional motifs yield an astonishing sense of tangibility and spacial depth.
He frequently attains such remarkable verisimilitude that a transcendent, supernatural presence is evoked from the everyday subjects he depicts. His renditions of the world around him have the sort of magical quality that insists, as does prolonged contemplation of reality itself, that there is more to be seen than meets the eye.
