Biography

T.M. Davy's representational paintings are intimate studies of light, figure, and the interplay between them. His most recent works closely examine candles' illumination of his subjects' faces, a practice which has grown out of his intimately detailed still lifes and portraits. Reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance style, Davy's aesthetic is built on warm realism and close attention to atmosphere and texture.
