Feature Artist - Natasha Daniloff

…. an artist who avoids stylistic labels. Working across a range of media and exhibiting diverse technical skills, her work is not constrained by a conventional artistic forum.  Lyn Cole, Director. Cudgegong Gallery

Natasha-Artwork

Natasha Daniloff is an Australian artist specialising in drawing, painting, mixed media and installation. Her work embraces a broad thematic framework referencing her Russian heritage, Iranian cultural motifs acquired when her family lived in Iran and fuses these with her experiences in the Australian landscape. These themes are explored through layers of materials and meanings.

The recipient of several prestigious residencies – Bathurst Regional Gallery Hill End Residency and Launceston City Council’s A.I.R. – she has been able to experience Australia’s diverse landscape and explore further aesthetic possibilities that can visually connect culture and context.

‘This landscape is simultaneously potent and strong, fragile and vulnerable. Tree roots cling to rocks creating their own rhythms, becoming powerful metaphors for co-existence and survival.

I paint what I feel, what I remember- a sense of place, rather than the actual image or objects connected to people and memories. I like to use the poetry of light and shadow to suggest the half remembered; that point when one state of being slips into another.’

She has had numerous solo and group shows in Australia and overseas and her work is in collections in the U.S. Britain, Denmark, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.
