Barbara Davi – Train of Thought

Swiss artist Barbara Davi works primarily in media installations and photo-collages, deploying architectural and geometric shapes and elements. Using wooden slats or a table, lines or a circular shape, light beams or shadows, Davi creates quasi-drawings in space and photo collages of a magical, almost three-dimensional depth.

This, the first book to focus on Davi, covers her innovative work of the past decade. Nearly one hundred images in color and black-and-white are supplemented by essays on Davi’s methods of working and her approach to her art. The result is a clear and compelling portrait of one of today’s most interesting and creative artists.
