BETSY B. DAVIDSON

 

This collection of work can be viewed as visual conversations in complex spaces. Through an explorative process, each of these dreamlike, abstract places has its own way of becoming realized. 
 
Often using many different mediums in one piece, I combine disparate elements, like collage with paint. By juxtaposing my own mark-making with perhaps nonsensical "found" materials, a new energy builds. From here, I work to introduce connections...to activate dialogue within the composition. I respond to the work as it develops further, and embrace serendipitous moments.   

The process is organic and often requires a germination period of days, months, or even years. By revisiting a work with fresh eyes, new perspective can offer solutions for an "abstract place" to become more fully articulated. Each time I sit down to work, I am motivated by the mystery.
