“Davidson’s art is not in between art object and material culture: it is contemporary, and its modern hybridity is culturally specific with universal appeal. His untitled acrylic paintings, one on paper (1997) [above] and the other on canvas (1999), are similar in their use of colour and form. Their primary colours recall the reductive look of a Mondriaan painting without its right-angle geometry; their split forms have a simplicity that make them visually comfortable, their painterly qualities achieved with diluted paint.”
