Listen to a fascinating interview with Julyan Davis by Antrese Wood:
Personal Art, Julyan Davis with Antrese Wood
Recent acquisitions of Juyan Davis' paintings include the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, the Greenville County Museum of Art (South Carolina), the Morris Museum (Augusta, GA) and the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion and Western Residence.

Julyan Davis states:
"My landscape palette generally consists of Titanium White, Naples Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cad Red and Alizarin, Cerulean, Ultramarine, Burnt Umber and definitely Black! I love to try other colors, though—an odd pink or orange, any yellow or blue. I’ll add a color to my palette for a painting or two, just see how it goes. I start all my paintings like some manic Expressionist—Beckmann or Rouault, lots of strong lines, intense color, then I calm down and apply most of the paint quite delicately.

I hope to end each painting though with final vigor. Auerbach said something like, “A painting needs a damn good kicking to get it started’. I like to come up with something that also catches me off guard at the close, kick the thing out the door, so to speak.

I may be a realist painter, but if I was able to visualize every single aspect of the final product before I began a painting, I would choose another profession."
