Ingrid Daniell shares her Victoria, Australia studio with us to show off her process of collage and deconstruction.
“I turned my focus on the sub-tropical north of Australia's east coast as my muse for these Paradise works. Including the Pandanus tree in my works really enhanced the romantic notion of an idyllic, unspoiled world.”
“I love working in collage, deconstructing forms and landscapes I've painted on paper. Cut and torn to create new worlds and observations, these are a form of release from the constraints I place on my Paradise works. I love the tension that builds in the negative space and the carefully reconsidered, awkward landscapes.”
“Often I have my punk / post punk favorites on rotation while working in the studio – "Total Control" and "Antropocene" reference my favorite Australian punk band Total Control, and a nod to Joy Division – both dark realists.”
