Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Cut down in his prime, Noah Davis was only 32 when he died of cancer in 2015, but he left behind a significant body of figurative paintings. Employing soft sensuous brushwork, Davis portrays African-Americans engaged in daily routines—slices of the everyday that seem dream-like or trapped in limbo. Quiet yet also vaguely ominous, Davis’s work takes an understated approach to capturing the insidious presence of racism in the lives of ordinary black people.
