Daniel Davidson

30 Apr

Daniel Davidson’s Mirror Drawings are constructed using watercolor pencil. He draws one side of the image in its entirety, then sprays the paper with water, folds it in half and buffs it vigorously. The paper is sprayed and buffed repeatedly until the drawn half is successfully printed on the opposing side, creating a completely symmetrical image. His constant immersion in the idea and creation of mirror images triggered Davidson’s recognition of seemingly symmetrical compositions all around him, from childhood memories to his every day life. Darth Vader in his TIE Fighter screaming through the Death Star trench, Diane Arbus’ Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, 1967, and a perfect ice cream sundae are just a few that are included in the thirty-two drawing symmetrical salon-style installation — Double Stuff.

Here are some artworks from the past years:
