Ingrid Daniell

Painter and visual artist, Ingrid Daniell, lives on the Surf Coast of Victoria, Australia, where the land and seascapes that surround her inspire her work. Places that are close to her life and experiences are never far from her paintings – the rugged Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road; remote Australia and its many national parks; the north and south east coasts of New South Wales and Tasmania.

Ingrid finds context in her painting by using the landscape as a metaphor for our fragile earth, the devastation of climate change and our human need to belong. Through her painting, she identifies the human and instinctive need to connect to the land, to the ocean, to a natural environment and the landscapes that make up our identity from the past, present and future. In many of her works Ingrid paints the landscape as an idyllic folk tale; redolent of a time and place when man had little impact. Through stylised and abstract form and symbolic paint gestures, Ingrid uses colour and a mix of textures; layering the canvas using shapes and colours in a warmth of texture and sheer to create magical, emotional landscapes.

With a Bachelor of Art in Textiles and Fashion (Hons, RMIT) majoring in Costume Design, Ingrid extends her love of colour, texture and drama, creating layers as she paints to build depth and dimension. Through her use of colour, she highlights the layers and form of the landscape shaped by weather and time.
