Danielle Winger

In her paintings, Danielle Winger honours the landscape as itself and as a metaphor. Mountains become places of ascension, inwardness and grace. Desert as indifference. Anthropomorphic trees light up in moonlight, reflected in water that has no boundaries but holds memory all the same. Untamed and wild landscape, in all its apathy, elicits a primal pull to enter it, to be joined with it, to know it intimately. Seeking the solace of empty places, she creates intensely personal portraits of quiet, meditative spaces that encourage contemplation, reflection and investigation of self, sublimity and the divine.
