Like a jazz musician, Laurent interprets old standards and improvises on their harmonies in kinetic three-dimension. To this artist, mobiles are melodies. Using shape, color, and rhythms, Davidson creates compositions in motion using aluminum plates and graceful steel arms.
Laurent’s in-the-round works range from mobiles floating from the ceiling to stabiles standing atop a pedestal or tabletop. Whether you look up or down, you will be surrounded by the moving colors of Laurent’s work, carrying on the traditions of his “Uncle” Alexander Calder but with a decidedly “Laurent Davidson” spin.
