Biography

Inspired by her close connection to nature, and by what she calls “the spirit of investigation and observation of the natural world,” Susan Davidoff makes prints, mixed-media drawings and paintings, photographs, and installations full of the patterns, colors, and forms of plants and landscapes. Her work begins with a walk, most often through the West Texas desert, where she lives. Along the way, she picks up bits of moss and lichen, handfuls of dirt, and other natural materials, which she brings back to her studio and rubs into the paper serving as the ground for her compositions, connecting nature itself to her interpretations of it. In one of her more abstract series, Davidoff evokes the umber hues of the Madera Canyon, while lamenting our spoiling of such precious places, in rustic drawings incorporating burnt plant materials.
