Working from his studio in China creating a fusion of modern style and techniques with the ancient Chinese ability and talent for carving, the Perry Brent Davis Studio merges east and west to create gemstone art. Davis also works with bronze, both alone and in mixed media pieces that combine Quartz, bronze and granite. Stone sculptures are uniquely created not by building, but by removing layers of stone. Each stone conceals its own variety of patterns and colors that can only be revealed by the most expert touch.
The stone, tethered on its custom base of the finest solid black granite, appears to float on air.
Most works are mounted to rotate freely when touched, adding another level of interactivity to the viewers experience.
In 1980, he received a graduate degree in gemology from the Gemological Institute of America in Santa Monica, California. In 1984, he began to experiment with carving smaller stones.
Over the next 25 years, Perry opened stores and studios throughout Colorado.
As his sculptural practice deepened, Davis became determined to find a solution that would enable him to create larger hard stone or gemstone carvings, something only a handful of artists were producing in the US.
Upon his arrival in 2006, Davis became the only expatriate gem carving artist actually living in China, and working hands-on with local artisans.
Perry's work has captured the audience of the gemstone community, including a long-term solo exhibition at Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California. His creations on display the last two years were recently extended for one more year.
The resulting creations can dazzle and mystify the viewer. Each sculpture is different and intriguing in its own way. The shapes provoke the imagination. Slowly revolving kinetically on its axis, the stone absorbs and reflects light throughout the spectrum. One can view the stone from various angles as it rotates and with each succeeding view, the depth and beauty of the stone is re-revealed in an entirely different way. The stone radiates an inner warmth and beauty that is so mystifying, the observer can get lost inside the stone.
One can easily ask what makes this gem carving special? Is it the inherent beauty of the stone? Is it the 500 man hours that went into crafting this sculpture? Or is it the fact that nothing close to this individual piece will ever be produced again.
