Based across Los Angeles, California; New Haven, Connecticut; and Accra, Ghana, Kenturah Davis works in drawing, painting, sculpture, and performance. Davis is interested in language and its relationship to the formation of identity and, in a broader sense, a world vision. Her multilayered process includes different forms of translation: from text to image and reality to representation. Her figures often intersect with words or are appear in movement. Exploring the potential of transmutable materials like embossing paper or paper transformed into thread, she interrogates the human essence.
