What You Believe is What You See is a solo exhibition of paintings by Artworks artist Jennifer Davey. The paintings are an honest and intentional record of the artist’s navigations through the internal landscape and the soul, in an effort to deepen understanding of what it means to be human in this both tumultuous and exciting time in human history. These works reflect different states of awareness, experiences, and insights.

Jennifer Davey’s studio practice is informed by a quest to understand her spiritual nature against the backdrop of contemporary culture. The lineage of painting, in particular, post-WWII American painters, greatly informs her visual language and approach to the canvas. Davey activates this abstract visual language in combination with contemplative practices.
Davey was born and raised in Colorado. The wide open landscapes of the West have always influenced her thinking and belief in what is possible. Her experiences living over-seas in Wales, Japan, and India further deepened her visual thinking and making. She is fascinated by psychology, mythology, and human health, and she loves how art can integrate and transform human suffering.
Davey’s work is held in multiple private collections and has been exhibited both regionally and nationally. Her Bachelor of Fine Arts was completed at Colorado State University in Sculpture, where she also obtained her K-12 art teaching license and a minor in Japanese. Davey currently lives in Fort Collins and works in her studio space at Artworks Loveland.
