Davina Semo

b. 1981


Davina Semo’s (b. 1981, Washington, DC) works reference a post-industrial world that is disquieting yet incontrovertible. Using materials such as one-way mirrors, chains, safety glass, reinforced concrete and spray paint, Davina Semo sculptures offer, as the critic Bob Nickas has pointed out, ‘a distanced and implied violence’, whilst also being ‘capable of pure poetic gesture.’
