A glimpse at rising above this stage (the anthropocene), and what can come next. The lines between human form and landscape are blurred which asks: what if we can really live in harmony with the planet? My hope is that viewers of these paintings will feel peace, and at the same time, notice the entanglement of a human with the rock and soil.
Size: 20 x 24 x 1.5 inches

Rock pigments picked up from Italy, Poland, and Ontario
About the Artist
Danielle forages for rocks in nature, grinds them down into a paint, and uses handmade papers or natural substrates to make paintings inspired by motherhood, human origins, and sustainability. Using exclusively handmade paints, she draws attention to the materiality of the paint and to how the earth pigments are interconnected to all bodies.
She is a mother of two, with a BFA from Ryerson University in Toronto. She lived abroad in Italy and recently relocated back to Canada. Focusing now on this hands-on and meaningful art medium, she brings pieces of nature into the homes of collectors. She is often motivated by environmental and feminist issues in our world - but often offering an optimism, evoking a sense of wonder of the natural colours of our planet.
