"My painting Ted acquired was part of a series of 12 small works from 1999," the artist recalls. "The paintings were oil on panel and were based on plants found on walks in an arroyo near my home in the Chihuahuan desert in West Texas."
Davidoff's drawings, paintings, prints and collaborative installations explore themes of structure and perception in the natural world. In addition to charcoal, oil, gold leaf and ink, Davidoff uses found organic materials. Moss, clay, cochineal, earth, and lichen collected on her desert walks are rubbed into the surface of the paper and panels, creating a physical connection between personal experience in nature and finished work.
Estimate: $1,500 - $2,000.
