Transformation 24 by Sharmon Davidson

monotype collage
with mixed media

Whatever the medium, my process involves gradually building up layers of various materials such as oil-based printing inks, watercolor, acrylic ink, colored pencil, and collage elements to synthesize a unified whole from the parts…The images are formed from the vocabulary of symbols that I’ve developed as I seek to express the theme that lies at the foundation of it all: a deep belief in the unity and connectedness of everything in the universe. Related to this is my conviction that every part of the earth is sacred, including the myriad beings that ride it through space. At the most basic level, we are made of the same stuff as the stars, the trees, the air, the ocean. Having come from the same source, we are all connected in the most intricate ways, both visible and invisible. This belief is expressed by the transposition of objects, the overlapping of transparent images, and by forms that seem to become something else. I’m constantly searching for more effective methods of revealing this mystery.”
