Rebecca Davidson is a contemporary abstract expressionist painter who lives and works in Milton, Delaware. Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, she has traveled and lived across the United States.
Davidson was a self-taught artist for several years before deciding to return to academia and complete her BA in Studio Art at Delaware State University. Her artwork has been shown in numerous juried exhibitions across the U.S., including The Birds and The Bees (The Practice Gallery, Philadelphia, PA - 2018), “Abstracts” Art Exhibition (Light Space & Time Gallery, Jupiter, FL – 2018) and Light and Remembrance (CAMP Rehoboth Gallery, Rehoboth Beach, DE - 2010). Davidson was an active member of the Greater New Orleans Artist Mansion collective during her time in New Orleans. She is a member of the Rehoboth Art League, the Developing Artists Collaboration, and The Delaware Contemporary.
Davidson is currently working on a new series which focuses on nuance, subtly, emotion, and texture using a methodical approach to each piece. Painting methodically has been and continues to be an impactful practice in slowing down and being present for her, and she looks forward to expanding her body of work in this manner.
I paint to express the human condition and the commonalities of experience that transcend race, sexuality, religion, and class. I want to create groundbreaking work which challenges both myself and the viewer to delve deeply. My work is intuitive, abstract, and visceral. I draw inspiration from the curves and angles of the human form, astronomy, current events, psychology, music, dance, theatre, and poetry.
