Prominent cultural leaders from around the world are more than just honoured guests in Davson’s artworks. With a hand or footprint, they become partners within a painting. This is a new artistic innovation, with Davson leading the way!
A Davson artwork invariably promotes awareness for harmony among all our Earth’s inhabitants. World leaders from diverse disciplines have shown their support for a variety of global causes by donating their hand prints. And many of these exceptional world contributors are delighted to have their original autographed handprint included in a Davson painting.
To our knowledge, this is another world-first initiative by Davson.
The first of these works, Creative World Leadership was conceived in 2000. At 2.6m high and 5m wide, it incorporates 47 handprints from cultural world leaders. However, Winning Combination, featuring Sir Jack Brabham’s handprint, was actually the first to be completed in 2007.
2015 – International Ventures
After the success of the first series of Davson ~ Connecting Friends exhibitions in Israel 2014, a second round of exhibitions in the Middle East is being planned for 2015. These exhibitions provide an avenue to develop cross-cultural cooperation and friendships in both “real” and “virtual” exhibitions. A large World Flag is displayed in these events symbolising the connectedness of all on our Earth.
An exciting development to the Davson ~ Connecting Friends initiative means exhibitions, events and projects will also be progressively held in the Republic of China. A collaboration in creating art with Renowned Beijing artist Cai, Chuan Sheng is expected in the future.
In response to her recent trip to the Republic of China, Davson has been invited to share her work and expertise with students from the Fine Art College of Shanghai University. This will incorporate a variety of projects, including unique art pieces and collaborations.
In conjunction with film media associates, Davson is currently preparing to produce and arts-based television series. There will be opportunities for internationally owned Davson art to feature, along with interesting footage about its regional location, local culture and people.
Not all collectors of Davson’s art permanently take their paintings home. Some invest and share their artworks by allowing them to be displayed with acknowledgement to the collector / investor. Davson plans to build permanent centres for the Arts and Earth, where owners of her art can also have an legacy of ongoing public acclaim.
