“I Took a Line for a Walk” by Steven Lee Davis

In his solo exhibition of fifteen wood block prints, printmaker Steven Lee Davis considers Paul Klee’s quote, “Drawing is taking  a line for a walk”. “I Took a Line for a Walk” is one of our current exhibits Upstairs at Main Street Arts and runs through September 27th.

Davis’ prints fit right in with our gallery space. Your eye moves left to right, following the print’s transformation from unintelligible marks to elegant plant forms, eventually evolving to what appears to be a human face, and finally dissolving into nothingness.

These block prints are viewed sequentially, as the connection of a line. Davis says that the process is doodlish in nature, which is evident in the freeness and flexibility of forms in the prints.
