Karma Clarke Davis
Karma Clarke-Davis was born in 1970 in Trinidad and Tobago, has lived in Jamaica, Saskatchewan, and Montreal. Currently based in Toronto, she draws on her East Indian, African and Scottish heritage to create works which seek to blur boundaries (racial, sexual, cultural, psychological). Trained as a dancer and in drama, art and music, she graduated from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, in Studio Art with a degree that included the study of painting, drawing, video, sculpture, installation and interrelated art. It is this past training that she draws on, as well as preoccupation with urban popular culture, to produce multi-layered mixed media works which explore her personal concerns with a dark, questing humour. She recently participated in Version City, an exhibition of Toronto artists in Buffalo at the University at Buffalo Art Gallery. She is also currently part of Pieces d'identite a program of young emerging artists programmed by V Tape Intern Stefan St-Laurent, that will be exhibited at the 12th Video Art Festival in Herouville, France. Karma Clarke Davis is a founding member and curator with Syndicate artist's collective.
