Calendar 2006 - Davis

Davis

The illustrations reproduced in the 2006 calendar were originally collages, which Davis interprets both magisterially and poetically. Using collage techniques Davis turns slivers of paper from stories and poems into snow, clouds, water and light: a tribute to the printed page, a medium which has transmitted culture and ideas through centuries.
