Rodney O’Dell Davis’ aesthetic could be described as a veritable carnival of serenely macabre, romantically gothic beauty- a slow, graceful stroll through evocative, melancholic memory. At once darkly fantastical, haunting, dignified, and sublime. As if unable to rouse oneself from a dream—Davis’ work will linger in your thoughts, long after the experience.
