A self-taught painter and engraver, Danielle spends all her creative work on the human body. But the Parisian artist does not only address this envelope of flesh in the physical dimensions that we know. Indeed, her pictorial universe neglects faces and eyes in order to let limbs and their muscles express themselves. Thus anatomy and movement become language. By choosing this form of expression, Danielle not only depicts the visible part of the being, but also describes the inner workings that connect it to the world and allow it to communicate. She scans and deconstructs the individual to extract meaning.
The interest of the artist for her subject is so deep that she cannot even determine the when it started; it has always been so. Recognized around the world, from Paris to New York via Belgium and Latvia, the work of Danielle has been honoured and awarded on numerous occasions since her first exhibition in the early 1990s.
Very attentive to light gliding over curves, the artist focuses on the softness of shadows, the dynamism of reliefs, and the strength of movements. Often focusing on dark colours, she invites us to take a fresh look at the body. She puts the subject in a clean environment, sometimes embellished with ochre and stronger elements, which make the whole work vibrate.
With striking energy, Danielle’s oils seem created with urgency. Her painting reveals her style: its precision, impact and enthusiasm. Sometimes isolated in their moments of abandon, Danielle’s bodies can also display their power in almost brutal impulses. We then glimpse the violence lurking in her work, ready to emerge. Because it is behind the flesh that everything happens, that passions explode in a rage to live.
