Davis Choun is a Raleigh-based artist working in sculpture and digital media. His work is born out of an attraction to discarded or everyday materials, most notably clothespins. After disassembling the clothespins, the wood pieces are then burned, dyed, and/or stained. Using those pieces, he composes a pattern to affix to a panel, allowing the clothespins to interact and layer on one another. His processes of manipulation heavily rely on improvisation and continuity.
Choun was born and raised in Rutherford County in western North Carolina and graduated from the School of Design at NC State in 2015. His work has been supported by various galleries around North Carolina, including Artspace in downtown Raleigh, where he was awarded an Emerging Artist Residency in 2017.
