Alan Davie

Alan Davie 1920-2014 Invitation to Join The Dance  2012 oil on canvas

I have posted Alan Davie many times before on this blog. He is touchstone for me from the early 60's when I first was introduced to his work by a professor and friend at SDSU. I identified with Davie's sense of color, iconography, and joyful approach to making paintings and drawings. To me, he was the Scottish Krishna. His use of universal symbols, text and exuberant color as he followed his own distinctive path made him a shaman for me.

Davie passed away at the age of 93 after a long and productive career.
