Scene interview with Dexter Davis

Cleveland-based artist Dexter Davis has it both ways at the Cleveland Museum of Art – not only does he hold down a day job working security, but he's one of the artists featured in the collection. A longtime staple of the Cleveland art scene, Davis creates mind-warped collages that are immediately striking: images sprung from his childhood amid the violence of Cleveland's Hough neighborhood, various mediums and textures, nods to styles ranging from Cubism to Abstract Impressionism – he tosses it all into the blender. His current show runs through Oct. 13 at the William Busta Gallery. Cleveland Scene caught up with Davis at a coffee shop near the museum.
