About the Artist
Marilyn Davidson is an internationally recognized artist working within the fine arts and industrial design disciplines. She has taught at Syracuse University, and as a visiting lecturer at Penland School, Chatauqua Institution, and art colleges in Europe. Numerous international exhibitions of her work have been held in New York, Germany, England, Yugoslavia, Australia, and Mexico, and her work has been represented and reviewed in Arts Magazine, The New York Art Review, Interior Design Magazine, The New York Times, NY Magazine and House & Garden, among others.
Her work has always been deeply engaged with the emotionality of color and involved with vital spiritual and biological principles. "It’s an artist's job to devise and impose an aesthetic order of symbols, to give form to collective and personal history," Davidson believes. The sculptor's faith in the possibility of defining feeling through its physical realization is at the heart of Davidson's aesthetic.
Her work is represented in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Twentieth Century Collection, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, the Everson Museum of Art and numerous other collections, public and private.
She was born in New York City and lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
