The Temple Of Earth Basking In The Moon Glow


Synthetic polymer on Belgian linen

60cm H x 45.5cm W



Framed in Tasmanian Oak

Says Ingrid of this work: “It is remarkable how time slows down and nothing else in the world matters when the full moon rises. I imagined myself float- ing in the cool of the Jarosite reef lagoon basking in the moon as it hangs over the crumbling cliffs like an orb atop an alter. I always feel the powerful pull of the full moon; there is a dream like fate to this constant in our life and a beautiful symbol of spirituality that connects us to the earth. I paint the moon with awe and reverence.”


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.
