TM Davy (American, b. 1980).
“Art works for me as a meditation on being in relationship with life. Light and love become each other when form is also a feeling. Paintings hum into a spectrum of connective reality.”
“The painting is of a horse eating grass. Horses have long played inside my practice, but this body of work began after a strange synchronicity. I discovered that my gallery at 195 Chrystie Street was located exactly where my ancestors had once run a livery horse stable after coming to NY in the late 1800s. I followed this fact toward making and meaning, devoting the next few years to the horse as a natural and mythic mirror of our co-evolution. I spent weeks in summery fields drawing them, tuning in to a frequency of long necks bowing for sustenance. This mantra of their heads bending toward a field made waves into my art-making. Solar portals of grass opened to a mystic song of simply being alive.
Before making Horses, the work that would include this painting, I had an exhibition called Candela. Each picture had a singular candle that radiated at the center and illuminated something loved. As I moved away from that luminant structure and into a study of equine embodiment, the two seemed connected somehow. My devotional attention saw the horses in unfolding radiances. Each blade of grass danced as rhythmic spectrums around their mythic heads, a play of transcendent becoming.”
