Dawn Shadows, Hope In The Waking Sun’s Glow



Synthetic polymer on Belgian linen

60cm H x 45.5cm W



Framed in Tasmanian Oak

Says Ingrid of this work: “Im not up for sunrise every day but when I am my heart skips a beat every time; the shadows start to melt as the glow erodes the disquiet. The gentle glow of the waking sun gives me a sense of hope, time slows down as the new day unfolds. Painted with a hopeful heart.”


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 vast Australian coastlines and desert camps.

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.
