"I found a book in a Paris bookstore calledA Bright Idea. It was ablank bookof lightbulb silhouettes designed for doodles, lists, etc. I thought the lightbulb shapes would make interesting faces and figures. Improvising without references,I obsessively drew all the characters with black pens over the yellow shapes. Once I started drawing in it, I couldn't put it down. I finished it on the plane back to New York." -dd
Davidson's work is a fusion of hybrid characters, spaces and styles often employing the comic or the grotesque; a reflection of societal overload, of the complexities of modern life, and the excesses and addictions that surround us.
