NEW EXHIBITION AT TL PDC | Cherie Benner Davis: Trichromic

Through March 25, 2022 at Thomas Lavin, PDC

Edward Cella Gallery proudly presents the exhibition Trichromic featuring a striking new body of work by painter Cherie Benner Davis. Davis playfully riffs on the botanical forms and cultural associations of Cannabis, desert landscape, psychedelia, and hard-edge painting.

In her work, Davis examines the significant shifting social acceptance and broader legalized use of the potent flowering Cannabis herb by setting out to create fantastical and optically active compositions. She draws from a diverse range of visual sources from the rose windows of Medieval cathedrals to contemporary fractal theory. Oscillating between hard-edged abstraction, magical realism, and pure sensation; the series of paintings posits the role of the artist in visualizing the shared social phenomenon as political and cultural boundaries change rapidly.

Trichromic is installed at the Thomas Lavin Showroom at the Pacific Design Center; the exhibition is available for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Appropriate social distancing measures are required. To schedule your personal tour with Edward Cella, email or telephone 323 525 0053.
