Work from his oeuvre.
“Zachary Davis is concerned with the limits and difficulties of human cognition, evolved long ago as a “learning and pattern recognition machine.” An active member of Portland-based artist collective Appendix Project Space, which is known as much for intellectual engagement as physical practice, his current research explores the resonance of new visual technologies with deep-rooted neurological processes. A broader interest in the collision of the natural and the synthetic also informs his project. While this sounds dryly conceptual, Davis’s study finds appealing material form in an interrelated and carefully curated body of sculpture, moving image, and photography.” – Becky Hunter
