Working in a variety of mediums, Minneapolis-based artist Jennifer Davis creates dreamland scenes awash in gauzy pastels and muffin-pan grays. Though at first glance her palette may suggest childlike whimsy à la “My Favorite Things,” Davis’s paintings are anything but naïve. Anthropomorphic creatures abound, as do horses and dogs and two-headed ladies. At once playful and menacing, and wedding the endearing with the grotesque, Davis’s paintings are new mythologies, a ghostly candyland gone wonderfully strange. Dazzling, enchanting, and exquisitely haunting, these are fairy tales for adults. For more on Jennifer Davis, see her conversation with Stephen Pemberton in the "interviews" section.
