Tessa Davidson


Tessa Davidson is a multi-media artist working outside of Little Rock, Arkansas.  Her work is a blend of contemporary and traditional—combining performance, video, sound, and representational oil painting.  Tessa uses the language of humor and absurdity on her pilgrimage for the sacred and profound.  Her work provides poetic soil to contemplate matters of spiritual faith while also navigating the tensions of religion, theology, and contemporary culture.  Tessa’s work has been exhibited internationally, and she received her M.F.A. from the New Hampshire Institute of Art in 2018.  Tessa holds a B.A. in Art Education and a M. Ed in Secondary Education from Harding University, as well as a M.A. in Art History from the University of Arkansas in Little Rock.  Tessa is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas.
