The aesthetic awareness of impermanence that results from a keen observation of nature’s cycles and the elusive attempt to capture light underlies much of the art of still life. In this coming exhibition Davidson continues to explore ways of expressing the illusion of substance and the beauty of transience. Borrowing from the imagery of both eastern and western traditions helps to develop her own personal aesthetic, layering interconnected ideas and imagery.
Davidson was a finalist in the Eutick Still Life Award, runner up in the Warwick Regional Gallery Art Prize and finalist in the Blake Prize for Religious Art and the Mandoorla Art Prize, winning the People’s Choice award for the latter. She has produced a number of commissioned portraits and works are represented in private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.
