Blur in the Interest of Precision

MATTHEW BROWN LOS ANGELES

Inaugural Exhibition

Kenturah Davis


Blur in the Interest of Precision 

January 26—March 3 2019

Opening Reception

Saturday January 26th, 6—9pm

Blur in the Interest of Precision is a search for parallel conditions between the poetics of our visual experience and the strangeness of our relationship to language. We often use language to carve out distinctions between one thing and another. Davis' objective—to complicate ideas about meaning, representation and perception—have found refuge in blur and doubling. The artist's new drawings are rendered with arrangements of text, but the words are virtually illegible. Many of the portraits pursue ideas the artist is working through via the writings of Fred Moten and Toni Morrison’s essay, Sites of Memory.
