A graceful sense of harmony pervades Julie Davidson’s captivating, hyperreal still life paintings. Davidson has devoted herself to the genre of still life for a number of years, teasing out various expressive possibilities through her ever-changing arrangements. In this recent series of paintings the artist introduces man-made artefacts from China and India. These are grouped with verdant fruit or flowers in a manner reminiscent of the grand Dutch and Flemish still life painting traditions of the 16th and 17th centuries.
