(American, born 1956)
Albuquerque, New Mexico-based artist John Davis creates sculptures that are strongly influenced by the American Southwest landscape, as well as by natural and man-made forms. His early studies in architecture were his introduction to art. Activities associated with connecting to the land – such as surveying, collecting natural materials, recording observations – are an important part of his artistic process. Davis completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture at Northern Arizona University in 1979 and a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Arizona in 1987.
