Beth Davila Waldman

(b 1975United States. Lives and works in Mill Valley)

My work echoes my decades long practice of walking through cities and nature alike observing and transforming elements from landscape into a unique visual language leading with the poetic and aesthetic while entrenched within a social framework via my photography. In my art, I use my own source imagery from my international travels as the foundation for my work that I deconstruct and interweave. My navigations through space explore the shifting perspectives, indications of a search for memory and the loss of it, and the psychological aspect of space within the framework of “home”. My overall approach embraces a collage approach towards constructing new imaginary cities using elements of abstraction challenging the viewer’s access to a complete photographic image with layers of paint and map like textural edge.
