Description
Inspired by a billboard seen on Vancouver’s Cambie Street Bridge, Davida Kidd’s work engages in biting double entendres. Working in the realm of manipulated photography, she blurs the line between illusion and reality, cultivating the ambiguous zone wherein the subjects of her work become invented creatures. Through the use of constructed sets and staged subjects, she creates large-scale photographic images that use digital collage to combine multiple objects, images and views. The result conveys a sense of loss and displacement on both a personal and environmental level. Davida Kidd has exhibited at M.I.A.D Venado Tuerto (Argentina), the Digital Museum of the Americas (Florida) and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. Her work is found in Banff Institute Permanent Collections, Guang Dong Art Museum, Guang Zhou (China), and Smallville Productions, Warner Brothers.
