Christian Dicky Davies is a Bay Area artist originally from Austin, Tx. His paintings are inspired by the American quilt patterns that he grew up around with his mother being a quilter. His practice is an open ended meditation that draws on tradition and pattern as a means for exploring connections to his past and a greater collective experience. Christian is the co-director of the Adobe Books Backroom Gallery in San Francisco and works full-time as a producer at SFMOMA. He has shown in various galleries and spaces in San Francisco. He has two cats and currently lives and works in Oakland.
