Occupied (2007)


  • Medium: serigraph

Dark- and ochre-red U’s multiply in a series in Occupied (2003, acrylic on canvas), creating an energy field that Davidson describes as rooted in the Haida visual vocabulary but existing without the formline. This painting is a kind of visual and verbal pun between the octopi that occupy the canvas and the newcomers’ occupation of Native land: “It’s our challenge to reclaim our place in the world,” he explains.
