Lee Baxter Davis creates intense, imaginative, detailed, textured, finely crafted works out of seemingly random symbols. They have a fun mystical dark feeling without being overly emotional and corny. His line quality has a magic balance between being loose / energetic and very articulate. He's obviously passionate. I enjoy comparing his old work with his newer pieces and speculating on his spontaneous process. He taught Gary Panter and Trenton Doyle Hancock while he was teaching at East Texas State University. He's now a retired assistant Pastor in East Texas at St William the Confessor Catholic Church, Greenville, Texas, and works in his home studio.
