Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York presents “And when you come back…” a solo exhibition featuring the work of Hernease Davis, organized by Samantha Box.

“And when you come back…” is the continuation of a series of exhibitions wherein Hernease Davis feels into her work the recapitulative process of healing from deep trauma. Contending with the cyclical reengagement with deep psychological woundings – as an in-process, healing person – she uses self-portrait cyanotypes on fabrics, crocheted felted wool, blotting paper, and recorded layerings of her voice to create immersive spaces that are physical expressions of this continuous, internal conversation. In so doing, she creates a safe space for herself and (with sincere hope) for others to rest, and to recover.

Hernease Davis earned her MFA from ICP-Bard College and widely exhibits multimedia installations throughout the U.S. Using photograms, cyanotypes on fabric, crochet and sound installation, Hernease creates immersive spaces of rest for herself and others. Work from her new series, “…new love.” debuted as a part of the SHIFT Residency 2020-21 hybrid exhibition at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City. She has also exhibited with the Silver Eye Center (Pittsburgh), Transformer Station (Cleveland), the International Center of Photography (New York City), the Visual Studies Workshop (Rochester), the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and the Houston Center for Photography. Hernease was recently named to the inaugural Silver List which recognizes emerging photo-based artists who are advancing the medium. She has been featured in Front Runner Magazine, LensCulture, and her work inspired an article in Musée Magazine that explored facets of trauma. Hernease teaches in the MFA program at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY. She served as a Visiting Lecturer at ICP-Bard where Hernease led a course exploring empathy through art practice.
