‘Imaginal’ by Mathias Davey

Merging the muses of the subconscious with the reality of creation can be a daunting experience for any artist. It takes a careful understanding of the mind and how it works to pull off successfully. Fortunately for us, that’s exactly what local artist Mathias Davey has accomplished. In his first solo show “Imaginal,” Davey, working with paint on wood, has created pieces that can best be described as subconscious kinetic rainbows of color. They refuse to sit still and conform to a structure, like a microscopic creature enlarged and subjected to hours of psychedelic flower power. Be warned —each piece is filled with such vibrant movement that it can be a dizzying, yet positive, experience.
