Curatorial+Co is delighted to present the third solo exhibition by Ingrid Daniell with the gallery.
Ingrid’s latest body of work – Shells turn to sand in a sea of infinite suns, is inspired by the landscapes that have shaped her life experience, particularly those in lutruwita / Tasmania. Ingrid strives to listen to the landscape and translate her experience into the dream-like and spiritual, imbuing them with a symbolic narrative that speaks to the deeper meanings they hold.
Through her paintings, Ingrid explores the concept of deep time, reflecting on the ways in which landscapes have been shaped and reshaped over millennia. Also contemplating the concept that time drifts, while deep, it is ever present through the profoundly beautiful landscapes Ingrid encounters. Ingrid reflects on the vast sand dunes and drifts of shells that generously weave along the East Coast of lutruwita (Tasmania), and how they represent time in motion, they move and shift with the tides, slowly yet surely turning over time into sand, they represent the constant of life and death and rebirth, evolution … time, constant and moving… drifting.
Says Ingrid: “Exploring treasured moments from time, I trace the atmosphere, mystery, and magic in the places I have experienced in my life. The merging of my memories of experience in the landscape, and the feelings that arise during the process of painting, enhance an intimate and intense connection to the environment and time.”
