SusanDavidoff

Born: El Paso, Texas, 1953

Based in the Chihuahuan desert of West Texas, Susan Davidoff creates drawings, paintings, prints, and collaborative installations informed by her interest in structure and perception of the natural world. Davidoff’s imposing plant silhouettes are records of her daily interactions with the landscape. Beautifully rendered, yet hauntingly stark, the images catalogue her natural surroundings through the use of materials collected from nature.

Davidoff completed her M.A. and an M.F.A. at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. Her work resides in public and corporate collections such as the El Paso Museum of Art, Texas; Hallmark Collection, Missouri; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, National Museum of Women in the Arts, D.C.; and the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Missouri; among others. Davidoff exhibits nationally, and has been a recipient of several grants and awards, including a Mid-America National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and a Ford Foundation/Pollack-Siqueiros Bi-national Art Award.
