Ronald Davis: Unidentified Floating Objects, Charlotte Jackson Fine Art, 554 S. Guadalupe St., 505-989-8688; through March

It has been more than 30 years since Ronald Davis has publicly exhibited his Floater Series, a body of work created in the late 1970s and last shown at the Nicholas Wilder Gallery in Los Angeles. Davis had his first solo exhibition at the gallery in the decade before. Between the mid-1960s and late 1970s he transitioned from Abstract Expressionist works to making hard-edged paintings and geometric forms, including minimalist-shaped canvases. In the Floater Series, he explored Abstract Illusionism, using two-point perspective and painting shadows of elements within a composition to create the illusion of depth and dimensionality of objects floating above the surface of the painting. A selection of work from the series is included in Unidentified Floating Objects along with examples of his Flatland Series from the early 1980s, Slabettes (shaped canvases) from the mid-1980s, and some of his more recent Pixel Dust Renderings, pigment prints created using state of the art 3-D computer software.
