We are delighted to share that Danielle Creenaune is showing at London Art Fair from 18 – 22 January.
Danielle’s works will be shown alongside several other artists as a represented artist of UK-based gallery CIRCLE Contemporary. Of her works, CIRCLE states:
“It begins with birds, not water. Danielle speaks of the rainforest birds near her home in Wollongong – meaning ‘sound of the sea’. The Illawarra region, south of Sydney, is home to over 350 species of birds including the mythical Lyrebird.
“It also begins with drawing. Drawing is an act of engagement – Danielle literally draws her way into her subject, observing the motifs and rhythms she finds in her surrounding wetlands and creeks. While making these drawings birdsong is ever-present. This soundscape is the invisible backdrop, unseen life, passing through each lithographic and woodcut print she makes.
“And now to water, the focus of a new body of work. For Danielle art and life coalesce and the mesmeric force of the great waterfalls of the Budderoo national park affect her deeply…
“Many times I felt the incidental flow of marks beyond my control, echoing the real life movement of water. I have found that over time, the energy and positive atmosphere of flowing water has become a reference point for me for healing and positivity and represents a grounding that comes with preserving green spaces in urban environments.”
