Houston-based artist Davey Eldridge’s paintings draw the viewer’s eye with their vibrancy and dynamic sense of composition. The landscape is a central source of inspiration of the artist, and each of the paintings in his “Maps” series represent not so much a specific place, but the structure and rhythm of nature. The landscape works as an undergirding theme embedded within each painting. Positioned within the American postwar tradition of abstract art, Eldridge works primarily in watercolor, building up the pigment in increasingly detailed layers. Originally from Canton, New York, he studied painting and printmaking at the State University of New York, Potsdam, and has exhibited at festivals and galleries both here in Houston and in upstate New York.
