Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. presents Davey Eldridge: "Maps Paintings" opening reception
Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. hosts the opening of "Maps Paintings," an exhibition of watercolor paintings by Houston artist Davey Eldridge. Eldridge says this collection of paintings is called "Maps Paintings" because of the suggestion of the landscape embedded in each painting. The landscape is a constant source of inspiration for Eldridge’s work. His paintings are not of specific places, but their visual vocabulary can be interpreted as elements of nature.
Eldridge often uses watercolor for his paintings. The initial layers are washes, thin and applied quickly (also known as the base color). As successive layers are applied, details and brushwork become more controlled. Motifs, relationships, and the linking of these ideas go through his mind and are articulated intuitively using smaller brushes.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until January 12, 2019.
