Working with heirlooms, bequeathed and found objects, as well as material emanations from his artistic practice, Matty Davis's jewelry stems from with the way in which objects serve as the containers for mental life, embedded with personal histories, relationships, and desires, and affected by the unique frictions of space and time. Like talismans, his unique works are imbued with iconography, design, and materials drawn from both realities and notions of gift-giving, prayer, healing, and fortitude.
