BIO 

Julie Davidow is a visual artist working in Miami. Davidow received a BS in Communications from the University of North Florida in 1986. After 10 years as a small business owner, she returned to study her first passion, art. She attended New World School of the Arts in Miami from 1996-1999 on scholarship with a focus on painting. Her work has since been exhibited at the Miami Art Museum; The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC; The Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art; The Tampa Museum of Art; SECCA in Winston-Salem, NC; and numerous galleries nationwide.   

Recent exhibitions of Davidow’s work include ArchiTECTONICS at Diana Lowenstein Gallery, Miami; Little Languages/Coded Pictures at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, NYC; and An Exchange with Sol Lewitt at Mass MOCA in North Adams, MA. She will be the featured artist for Girl’s Club Collection at Pulse Miami in Dec 2012. Davidow’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Miami Art Museum, the Girl’s Club Collection in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Epic Miami Hotel and many private collections. She is recipient of ARTslant's First Prize Golden Frame award, a Florida Artist Enhancement Grant, and the Leo and Raye Chestler Contemporary Visual Arts award.  

 Her work has been featured in ARTDistricts, The Week, New American Paintings, ArtPapers, Artdaily, The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald, The Miami & Broward New Times, elsewhere. In addition, Julie is the coauthor of the book MIAMI Contemporary Artists, published by Schiffer Publishing in 2007.  

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work seeks to establish order through the mapping of multiple visual cues of biological, botanical, geologic,cartographic, and architectural influences. These cues include specific, compositional “samples” of both thearchitecture of contemporary art museums and the contemporary art within these structures. This sampling is achieved through a diagrammatical folding and scoring of the raw canvas, creating a “scaffold” for the composition of painting. Contradiction is inherent to the work. A struggle to control and relinquish are persistent drives in the process, and reflect my continued investigation of the struggle for balance between the natural and built environments.
