Paul Davis, a painter, teacher, and art administrator, was born December 2, 1946, in Quonset Point, Rhode Island. After attending Boston University and earning both a Bachelor of Fine Art (1973) and a Master of Fine Art (1975), Davis began a long and distinguished career as a teacher and painter. He taught at Boston University, Reegis College, Art Institute of Boston, and the University of Utah, from which he recently retired.
Davis has exhibited around the state of Utah as well as in numerous group exhibits throughout the country. His work has been seen at the Bountiful Art Center (Bountiful UT), the Kimball Art Center (Park City UT), Springville Museum of Art (Springville UT) Corcoran Gallery (Washington, DC), Amerika Haus (Hamburg, Germany) and many others. Paul Davis is the recipient of the Painting Prize, "Utah ‘80" from the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, the Utah Arts Council Visual Arts Fellowship, and the Western States Arts Federation/NEA Fellowship for Visual Artists. Davis says of his own painting methods, "As my paintings accumulate layers of paint, they accumulate layers of meaning for me. When a painting is almost done, if it is any good, I begin to realize what it has been trying to tell me. If it is a good picture it continues to reveal itself." Deseret News Jan. 24, 1981
As Davis looks to the future he continues to accelerate in his painting career. He is currently working on opening a studio/gallery for Utah artists.
Paul Davis has had a distinguished career as an artist. His work is described as being remarkably original. Davis is a realist who probes beyond mere imitation to find complexities and intensities of contemporary living. "He is a most serious and dedicated artist with an acute eye and a highly developed critical sense. His work is sophisticated, knowledgeable and completely independent." (Andrew Forge)
