Artist Interview



Davis’s Retail Series (2001) examines the increasing presence of commercial interests in small-town America. These images of suburban houses are photographed at night using available light from nearby streetlamps, and without any glimpse of their inhabitants. On closer inspection, the logos of multinational brands such as Shell and McDonalds can be seen reflected in the windows. Although the sources of the reflections are out of frame, in most cases, they seem to be just the other side of the road, reinforcing the idea the inextricable fusion of consumerism and everyday life.
