Dan Davis takes inspiration from the color palette of Miami Vice, a production that prioritized pastel and candy shades over earth tones. Compressing echoing references into curious compositions, he sets the stage for something uncanny in his first stateside solo exhibition. The paintings represent time, with layers of underpainting built up, and they feel like the future remains of fleeting reverence. There are no people in these rooms he’s imagining, only belongings. Their absence makes it easy to imagine yourself in those spaces, wondering where you are and what’s next. —Kristin Farr
