COLUMBIA, KY - A new exhibit at Lindsey Wilson College invites viewers to see the stories in others' faces. "A Thousand Words" by Los Angeles-based artist Len Davis is on display in the LWC Lucretia C. Begley Gallery through February 20, 2015.
"A Thousand Words" features 20 pieces of small, intimately sized pieces of mixed-media art, each with a face and a story. The exhibit is part of 100 pieces Davis created. Davis said he hopes viewers of "A Thousand Words" will create stories based on their own thoughts.
"I wanted to do a series of drawings with 100 different faces," Davis said. "I felt each face has a unique expression which told it's own story. Then I wanted to take it further by using a literal meaning to the series by drawing the faces over a myriad of words and text as well as surrounding the face with found objects and torn paper with random text on it."
LWC Professor of Art Tim Smith describes Davis as being "an enthusiastic, dedicated artist" who creates accessible work.
"What he's trying to do is to create artwork that is accessible and available for everyone everywhere," Smith said.
Although all 20 pieces are mixed-media, each work is very different.
"I want for the viewer to determine their own definition from each piece, asking themselves, What are these faces stories? What were they thinking at that moment? Why is there random text embedded and around these faces? 'A Thousand Words' can illustrates a mental image," Davis said.
The website for Len Davis' work is: lendavis.com.
