Stephen Davis works in Galisteo, NM and Pecos, TX. Since 1971 he has persistently taken the elements and language of painting apart and put them together again to find a new structure for his painting. For this he has been awarded three National Endowment for the Arts grants, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Pollock-Krasner, Joan Mitchell, George Sugarman, and two Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation grants. His work is in the collections of LAMOCA, the San Francisco Museum of Art, UC Berkeley Art Museum, the El Paso Museum of Art, and others. He received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2015.
