TM Davy

Full CV (PDF)

TM Davy is best known for his figurative paintings and pastels rendered in a luminous reality. Davy paints with light and shadow, centering relationships of love and self-realization. He often depicts the subjects of his work in intimate interactions, allowing the viewer to participate in moments of uncanny engagement. Davy's painting style is a virtuosic layering of radiant color and symbolic illusions of form. Believing that all of art history is the ground for a present understanding, Davy's practice connects with mystery, metaphor, and the metaphysical. For Davy, painting finds roots in a broader tradition of meditative corporal experience. His work often integrates breath-work, song, and experimental performance as extensions of his paintings.

Davy has had solo exhibitions such as Fae, Company Gallery, New York (2023); TM Davy. Fire Island, Galerie Thomas Fuchs, Stuttgart, Germany (2021); Horses, Exile, Berlin, Germany; and 11R, New York (2017). Davy has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including those at the Brooklyn Museum, New York; Perrotin, New York; Company Gallery, New York; CF Hill, Sweden; MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA; Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark; Tate Modern, UK; X Initiative, New York; and Galeria Fortes Vilaça, São Paulo. Davy graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he now teaches. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
