NEWSText: Satsuki Miyanishi

Galerie Gabriel Rolt is delighted to announce the first exhibition in the Netherlands by the young American artist Davina Semo. ‘Pacing Like A Tiger’ presents an entirely new body of work. Semo’s sculptures combine brutality with beauty, describing a psychological landscape that is both dangerous and intoxicating.

Semo has attracted considerable attention for the physicality of her works. Using such materials as one-way mirrors, chains, safety glass, reinforced concrete and spray paint, her works reference a post-industrial world that is disquieting yet incontrovertible.

Her sculptures offer, as the critic Bob Nickas has pointed out, ‘a distanced and implied violence’, whilst also being ‘capable of pure poetic gesture.’
