Gene Davis’s art is known for the artist’s use of vibrantly colored vertical stripes on canvas--- as large as 43,000 sq. feet and as small as 3/8 of an inch.
As a preeminent member of the Washington Color School’s Color Field movement, each of Gene Davis’s pieces shamelessly feature color as its prevailing theme. Davis is well known for his monumental and minuscule works including Franklin’s Footpath (1972), Niagara (1972), and his 3/8 of an inch “micro-paintings”. Gene Davis’s decor and aesthetic are reminiscent of the minimalist Color Field works of Ellsworth Kelly art.
