SAKS, a new gallery which opened this year in Geneva, Switzerland is currently presenting a new series of paintings and pastels from New York-based artist Sarah Davis. The artist has rendered this new series of work from specific paparazzi images that unsuspectedly catch young women like Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton in compromising situations. The series focuses as much on the predatory practices of the photographers and all prevailing surveillance that these young women are subjected to as much as the characters themselves.
Davis is a graduate of the School of the Visual Art in Chicago and has completed recent solo exhibitions at Michael Steinburg Fine Art and East Galley, both in New York City. This year, the artist exhibited with ExitArt Summer Mixtape Volume Two.
