Artistic style and method

Mythological stories and paintings form the central points for many of Cathrine Raben Davidsen’s artworks, which are often about transformation. She has, for example, interpreted the Sandro Botticelli Renaissance painting, Primavera..

However, she also goes far beyond the inspiration of the Renaissance and often mixes contemporary attire and modern hairstyles into the classic characters.

Gender and femininity

Cathrine Raben Davidsen draws people, animals and symbols from the mythology of the past, but often pulls them out of the narrative context and places them lonely and expressive in her art. They become independent figures with their own expression. The motifs are most often women in different forms and during transformation. The transformation is not necessarily easy and pleasant, but may seem blurred, problematic and difficult. The eyes are pretty or suffering. The women in Cathrine Raben Davidsen's paintings are often both beautiful and empty, present and distant, clear and vague, historical and modern.
