Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Sarah Davidson’s artwork is remarkable because it treats the fragment as subject, artifact, and object of obsession.
Making reference to turn of the century comics, art historical drawings, and household crafts, the artist suggests possibilities born of rearranging parallel, underrepresented cultural histories.
Sarah Davidson studied art at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver and Journalism and English at Carleton University in Ottawa. She exhibits frequently in the Vancouver area and more recently at AiR Sandnes in Norway. She has contributed art criticism to Bartleby Review and ISSUE Magazine.
