My work is a fusion of hybrid characters, spaces and styles. Focusing on the urges and consequences of actions on a personal, as well as social level, my work has been about over-consumption for the past few years. Often employing the comic or the grotesque, my work is a reflection of societal overload, of the complexities of modern life, and the excesses and addictions that surround us. -Daniel Davidson.
For his first solo exhibition at Lump, Davidson presents a new body of work entitled #movingpictures. The exhibition will include projected drawing animations, a group of collaged drawings where the images migrate and mutate from older drawings, a series of photos called One Sided Love and a series of drawings of heads culled from office faxes, old children's books and optical illusion magazines.
