Beyond language „One may conceive my art as some kind of poetry. It is about aesthetics - impulses, about an alternate reality brought into our existing world. I create my ideas from an inner world of sentiments, it can be understood as a profound encounter with my innermost self. My true aspiration is to bring thoughts alive, to make them tangible for the spectators. These thoughts come from the subconscious mind, from a certain part of human apprehension that can‘t be understood completely but more easily felt. It works as an object and storyteller. A small line between heroism and agony. Art as an overall concept speaks to me in a different kind of language. It is nothing I can describe with words just like that. Either you have that sort of feeling towards art or you won‘t appreciate the value.“ The thought process of creating a painting is immense but has a value which is worth the demanding work. In contemplation of the great significance of his creative accomplishments J. Davis is putting a lot of effort into planning the process of his ingenious work. But once the plan is set the actual process of painting happens quickly but precisely. But the most challenging part for J. Davis is to finish the paintings in a way he considers appropriate. The further the process of painting is, the harder it gets to come to an end and to finish his creative work without losing its poetic sense. J. Davis uses colours as some sort of contrast and words to make things more tangible and mentally stimulating for the observer. It‘s all about seemingly hidden attributes the spectator is only able to find while looking at the painting for quite a while. Each work of J. Davis art has its own story to tell. And that‘s exactly what makes every single piece extraordinary.
