Laurent Davidson Art

LAURENT DAVIDSON (USA, B. 1949)

Laurent Davidson was born in New York City and then moved with his family in 1953 at the age of four to the Loire Valley in France. There he lived and was educated for the next 20 years. He is the grandson of internationally distinguished portrait sculptor, Jo Davidson. Davidson attended the Beaux Art School in Tours, France, before working in lithography printing, art conservation and restoration. He first experimented with “Mobiles” at the age of 13 when living in Saché, France, next door to Alexander Calder, the world-renowned artist who developed and popularized the unique art of Mobile making. Calder’s daughter married Laurent’s uncle and they all lived together in the same village of Saché. It was the study of music and chromatic harmony that initiated a renewed interest in sculpture and Mobile making. Made of elemental shapes composed in rhythms and colors, set on a point or suspended in the air, Mobiles can be considered to be part of the wind instrument family. Exploring their similarity to musical scales or phrases, Davidson aspires to convey the relationship between the visual arts and music. Mobiles floating in space and time can be interpreted as “harmonic progressions” and their movement as “variations.” Working with aluminum and steel, Davidson creates Mobiles and StabiloMobile sculptures for interiors as well as for outdoors. Each sculpture is painted with Japan Colors, an oil-based paint that dries to a flat finish so that the colors are visible from all angles. His large outdoor installations are made of heavy-gauge metals and painted with durable weather-resistant paints. Laurent Davidson’s Ariel sculptural mobiles and stabiles (balancing table sculptures) are inspired by nature and are composed like music. Davidson’s work has been exhibited and is collected worldwide.
