There have been two American painters named Stuart Davis. The first (1892-1964) is known for abstract paintings influenced by jazz. The second (1971- ) is best known as a songwriter/performer of Integral Pop music, and writer/actor of comedy (as with the TV pilot Kill The Buddha, the audio book Love Has No Opposite, or his forthcoming book Sex, God, Rock 'n Roll). The second Stuart also paints- mostly black and white calligraphy (featuring a language he constructed called IS) with an assortment of crows, buddhas, and dakinis inspired by his practice in Soto Zen and Integral Art. His constructed language is an ongoing experiment in perspectives, which among other unique features, cultivates modes of communication that actively engage altitudes as an intrinsic assumption. He is teaching it to his daughters, and plans to publish dictionaries and work books in a decade or so (there are about 20,000 words at this time). In the mean time, he combines poems in the language with calligraphy works. Stuart can be commissioned for paintings--contact him at [email protected] for details.
