Compassion and insight are the two words which immediately come to mind when viewing Nikki Basch-Davis’ depictions of human beings. She is a humanist, whose work emulates the finest examples of early twentieth century German Expressionism and American Social Realism. The portrayals realized in her paintings and sculptures celebrate the human spirit; conveying moments of serenity, affection, tolerance, despair and joy. Her poetic visualizations provide a sense of hope, despite humanity’s turbulent journey towards uncertainty. Basch-Davis is a rare breed in artistic innovation; a true avant-garde.
