Sarah Davidison’s “perspectives', is a series of images that use extreme colour and texture to excite and intrigue the viewer.”
Davidson’s microscopic ‘close- ups’ invite us to see the extraordinarily beautiful and unexpected sights, which are not normally visible to the naked eye. Rather than portraying the people or environment, Sarah focus’s on some of the cities human touches and idiosyncrasies. Visiting abandoned buildings, Hospitals and schools she unearths the minuscule details of an environment, seeking to suggest its character and atmosphere.
Rough and irregular or smooth and shiny, the texture and colour in Sarah’s photographs tell us how a surface might feel if we were able to touch it. Her instinctively vigilant eye combined with her advancing technical ability enables the viewer to journey past this initial sense of mystery or intrigue and on to a surface and composition of interest and relevance in its own right.
