Kate Davis received her M.A. at Hunter College, CUNY, NYC, in painting, having studied with Ralph Humphrey, Doug Ohlson, and Tony Smith. She lives and works in New York, taught at Parsons School of Design and Fordham University. The paintings contain elemental forms, that emphasizing structures that emerge intuitively-to contain, among other things, experience of color and ambiguous space. Though grounded in ornament, the intent of the work is an instinctive involvement with the power of abstract image. She last showed her work at The Painting Center, project room in April 2001 and Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Art Gallery, in New York, November, 2000.
