At Vancouver’s WAAP, Canadian artist Sarah Davidson draws on their experience as a nature guide to produce a series of dramatic works that pull from the history of nature drawing while queering it at the same time. The works blend pastels, oil paint, ink, and watercolor to create layered compositions of biomorphic figures and fragments of nature. Amid the natural forms, the works are littered with eyeballs, a way of looking back at the viewer, and a reference (and response) to science’s history of “objective” categorization of nature, Davidson told ARTnews. Davidson’s works thrillingly return chaos back to nature.
