Description

Art by Davey has been an expressionist and performer in the arts in New York for over 30 years from the legendary House of Field through the iconic NYC cult clubs Jackie 60 and Mother, brilliantly photographed by Michael Blase for many years.

In this stunning image by Michael Blase, a unique print especially created for the Terrence Higgins Trust in 2019, Pink Moon expresses the idea of ‘retro-future’ as posited by fashion, design and graphics of the past. Art by Davey questions whether this ‘future’, as seen at the World’s Fair in 1964, ever came to pass. Do we even visualize the ‘future’ any more? The white costume channels the dance drama of Martha Graham’s Lamentation and the pharaonic mask reflects both entities in space present in Egyptian hieroglyphics and the use in film and television of Egyptian design when picturing ‘alien outer-space’. With the pink/orange hued glowing neon moon, a dramatic color often used in the 1960s to denote the sci-fi future, Pink Moon was enacted on the streets of Manhattan in a public sculpture, bringing this retro-futuristic vision into the city of today.
