Julie Davidow: The New Strain
Opening reception: Friday, Sept 5, 6?–?9 pm
Exhibition runs through Oct 5, 2008
Like a frustrated scientist, Davidow collects specimens of the organic and inorganic worlds, motivated to create art by an endless curiosity for the natural sciences, the systems that govern its functions, and the relationship of those systems colliding with man’s coexistence and interference. These relationships are explored through painting, drawing, and site-specific wall drawings of biomorphic shapes.
These shapes interact and respond to one another, like organisms under a microscope, spreading tendrils out into the space of the two dimensional plane. The imagery is drawn from biological, sexual, botanical, geological, cartographic, and architectural influences.
