Damien Davis’s puzzles serve as a nonlinear narrative form that constitutes a whole made up of idiosyncratic parts. These glyphic shapes and patterns create ever-shifting relationships and meanings that broker new associations and conversations. Conceptually, the puzzle format embodies the core ethos of the artist’s work, which is to distill a visual language of symbols from black history and popular culture and to offer an iconography of cultural reference points.
