The Davidoff Art Initiative (DAI) to name Rodell Warner the artist for the 2017 Limited Art Edition

In his wide-ranging body of work, Warner explores interpersonal relations by employing digital media and photography, creating unique patterns and projections. He frequently harnesses facets of new media (e.g. animated GIFs) to augment his sensitive installations. Two of his photo series, First Light and Negatives — both involving photographs projected onto his subjects — explore a progression of alteration and experimentation. His Negatives series has led to a commissioned work for Greybook magazine (Portland, OR) and an animation for DIGITAL at the National Gallery of Jamaica, 2016. Warner’s residency at New Local Space (NLS) in Kingston, Jamaica, involved a community-building aspect. The artist produced printed, patterned fabrics from images captured from nature, which he then transferred into wearable garments and functional objects in collaboration with local designers. The meta-exhibition culminated in a multimedia live event that intermingled material, digital art, and the environment.
In addition to the third Limited Art Edition, Davidoff will present in Hong Kong the black version of the new Masterpiece Humidor Damajagua in its lounge at Art Basel. Conceived as an ode to Davidoff’s Caribbean terroir and inspired by the lushly forested Damajagua region, in northwestern Dominican Republic, the Masterpiece is created by renowned French marquetry artist Rose Saneuil.
