In the “Go Texan” spirit of the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo, William Reaves Fine Art is pleased to feature recent works by Austin artist, Keith Davis, in an ONLINE-ONLY exhibition entitled, Serial Western. Like trail riders rolling into Memorial Park, Davis’s whimsical paintings of vintage cowboy characters decked in full regalia ride into the Reaves Gallery just in time to participate in Houston’s annual salute to the legacy and romance of the cowboy culture.
Although very much from the present, Davis’s cowboy subjects are a throw-back to earlier times. Channeling the sense and feel of an old Spaghetti Western movie, he brings contemporary western characters back to the stage in a sensitive and dramatic fashion. As a modernist painter, Davis is an unabashed colorist who flirts with the tenets of magical realism in his overall approach.
In Serial Western, we invite viewers to “return again to those thrilling days of yester-year” to encounter a new, contemporary cowboy scene created through the eyes and brush of Keith Davis. Undeniably, the exhibition offers up a series of enchanting sitters portrayed in avant-garde style that are every bit as beguiling and fun to watch as the old-time Westerns that inspired them.
This is an ONLINE-ONLY exhibition.
