Chandler Gallery Current Exhibit

Chandler Gallery Current Exhibit

February 03 - February 28, 2020

Deborah Davidson blurs the line between art and magic. In the same way magicians use sleight of hand or illusions to make the impossible seem real, so too does “Dissipate. Disappear. Dispel,” Davidson’s upcoming exhibition at the Chandler Gallery. Her arrangement of black columns and line drawings sounds simple and may be minimalist in principle but, when put together, present more than what initially meets the eye.

To execute her vision, Davidson painted columns black and bisected them with fluorescent orange and red, making sections of them appear as if they’re floating. She surrounded these columns with her drawings: a series of many fine, differently colored lines all grouped closely together.

Davidson explained that the essence of the show is the contrast between the tangible and intangible, the permanent and the fading. The columns, she explained, “assert themselves and cannot vanish unless removed or degraded in some way,” while the drawings represent the act of disappearing or “things ending.”

Community Artist Spotlight Space Exhibition

Community Artist Spotlight Space Exhibition

March 02 - March 30, 2020

My artistic practice is process-oriented. The way I approach the material has much to do with my fascination with chance, chaos and randomness on the one hand, and repetition and patterns on the other. My drawings and paintings are the result of a constant battle between creation and demolition. My work is never completely defined, and in almost all of it, objects lose their shape. In my drawings, dark and black spots assume dominant roles, but it is not clear whether the other visible shapes and marks emerge from these or travel toward them.

In this exhibition I am presenting my latest work on paper. Here, repeated marks are grouping themselves in some kind of intelligent order, as they do in maps or graphic representations of data. These visual explorations are the result of my temporary working environment, an apartment where possibilities are limited. I can’t pour paint because there is not enough space, and I do not use oil paints because of the toxic fumes. In one small room I have just a desk, a small laptop, my books and some painting and drawing materials.
