Di-Andre Caprice Davis was born in Kingston, Jamaica. She is a self-described experimental artist whose practice focuses on a research-based alternative approach used to primarily explore form and the development of non-standard languages; through the engagement of the capacities inherent to new media. Abstraction, computer graphics, GIF art, glitch art, mathematics, photography and surrealism are some of the fascinations that animate her practice. Her works have been exhibited and screened in Jamaica, Australia, Barbados, Canada, UK, USA, Trinidad and Sweden.  

Notable exhibitions include the National Gallery of Jamaica’s Jamaica Biennial (2014 and 2017),Young Talent (2015), Digital (2016), Explorations VI Engaging Abstraction (2017 – 2018), Jamaican Pulse: Art and Politics from Jamaica and the Diaspora (2016) at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, United Kingdom and New Century/New Materials – Current Art Trends in Science and Technology (2019) at Spaulding R. Aldrich Heritage Gallery, Whitinsville, Massachusetts, USA. She completed art residencies at Bluecoat, Liverpool, United Kingdom (2016) and Alice Yard, Trinidad (2018). At the 2017 Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, she won the award for Best Experimental Film for her work Chaotic Beauty, 2016, which has also been shown at The Dean Collection’s No Commission show during Art Basel Miami 2017.



Artist Statement


My practice focuses on a research-based alternative approach that is used to primarily explore form and the development of non-standard languages through the engagement of the capacities inherent to new media. My work seeks to compare and contrast ways in which the human brain perceives, processes, and interprets visual imagery. Most of my digital images begin with abstract illustrations I have conceptualised and created or a photograph or video which appeals to me because it may convey mystery or an unusual beauty. My art continues to fuel my interest to investigate and learn different ways of making use of the ever-changing world of technology.
