Historical accounts, works of fiction and mythological material combined with personal memory often form the point of departure for the work of Danish artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen. Her activities are characterized by a strong fascination with the material and the urge constantly to experiment with and explore different artistic techniques. The traditional hierarchies among art, artist-craftsmanship and design are negated in an artistic oeuvre that ranges wide from painting, drawing and ceramics to costumes and stage design.

Cathrine Raben Davidsen trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and at academies in Holland and Italy. Behind her she has a succession of museum exhibitions in Denmark and internationally. Raben Davidsen is represented in a wide range of museums and well reputed private collections. She has made costumes and sets for the Royal Danish Ballet and has been awarded many pres­ti­gious prizes and grants.
