Jack Davidson

Aberdeen, Scotland, 1958
Jack Davidson’s artistic project is essentially a demonstration of how the painter reacts to his surrounding reality and its influences.

Beyond colours’ simple designation (yellow, green, red…) we seem not to find a satisfactory way of describing both the qualities and the experience of colour.

Jack Davidson’s painting freely dissociates from the field of descriptive language to settle in a more undetermined sphere.

Painting is, for him, a process that arises from sensibility and that later implies a slow and reflective experience both for the painter and for the viewer. It offers a different experience and temporality than that offered by the surrounding reality, often saturated by visual stimulation.
