A Shared Vision

Works by Denise M. Fulton & Sam Yeates

Davis Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit of new works by Austin-based painters, Denise M. Fulton and Sam Yeates. A Shared Vision will feature allegorical canvases marked by vivid color and rich with symbolism. Both artists are known for their heavily studied realism and dedication to traditional imagery.

Denise M. Fulton has spent the last few years devoting her time to studying the human form. Her figurative work questions our own preconceptions of those around us, by layering projections of intricate patterns, famous artwork of the past, and popular board games.

When describing his work, Sam Yeates pays close attention to each carefully placed symbol within his compositions. He states, "to me, a painting is like a play unfolding on stage." The open landscapes, the still water of a swimming pool, winged cats, all carry specific interpretations fed by the artist's own past experiences and imagination.

Davis Gallery will be hosting a conversation with both artist's present on Saturday, March 30th starting at 2 pm.
