During the Duwamish Residency, Linda Davidson roamed the shores of the Duwamish River on foot with either a small sketchbook in hand or an 8 mm video camera. This last year even with a portable typewriter. She might characterize herself as a painter. We might say she is a visual poet. Her participation is uniquely experiential. The act is the process. When we threw down the challenge of putting all of this into words, Linda responded in her usual eloquent way.
"It gets bigger for me as it goes away."
Linda Davidson received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1982. She worked for several years as an illustrator in NYC before moving with her husband to London and focusing on fine art. Following years in London and Kuala Lumpur, she landed in Seattle in 1997 where she has lived, worked and exhibited for the past 15 years. Her paintings are represented by the G.Gibson Gallery.
