Inspired by the Chinese concept of "Li" (organic pattern in nature), Davidoff''s recent work is part of an ongoing exploration of order and structure in the natural world. Her works also examine the human relationship with the natural environment, and the human systems we have created in our attempt to understand it.
"A walk or hike is often the genesis for a specific drawing. On my walks, I observe, sketch, photograph and collect the organic forms that serve as a basis for these works", says Davidoff. In addition to charcoal and graphite, Davidoff’s works on paper consist of found materials that are rubbed into the surface of the paper such as juniper berries, clay, cochineal, rust and lichen. "These physical remnants serve as connections between personal experience and finished work", she says.
Currently residing in El Paso, Texas, Davidoff has exhibited across the United States, and has been collected by many prestigious institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
