Katie Daniels | Unfolding Light
For her first show with The Design Files, Melbourne artist Katie Daniels explores the human capacity to feel beauty and joy in times of great difficulty.
What began as a personal homage to her past, this collection of dreamy landscape paintings represents moments of peace amidst times of upheaval, when a powerful undercurrent of hope endures. Foreboding shadows contrast with glimmers of brightness in her highly evocative scenes.
‘In a sense, I was following these moments of light to reach the place I now find myself. These works look back to what has been, and give thanks to what has led me here.’
– Katie Daniels.
Katie holds a Bachelor of Creative Arts from the University of Wollongong, and a Masters of Arts Curatorship from the University of Melbourne.
