Canadian Sculptures' Society

Brett Davis

Artist Statement:
Through thousands of years of history, numerous civilizations have built magnificent monuments & sculptures. My work signifies the ingenuity of our ancestors who harmonized the human form with structural elements. My influences are immersed in British, Greek, Egyptian, and Asian cultures. I minimize detail to a basic simplicity of shape to create & display the beauty of art in architecture in unique designs. Each sculpture is created specifically for both public and private interior settings, parks, as well as garden and architectural landscape features.
