Says Ingrid Daniell of her work Waiting, in Hope, for Paradise: “This magical, stunning Pandanus tree stands in solitude at Noosa’s Tea Tree Bay; its root system is not grand at the base yet its arms stretch out, curl into a hug, wave and scream in its magnificence as it looks over the stretch of beach heading up to Double Island Point.”

Ingrid explains her Remembering Paradise series: “In preparation for an exciting commission inspired by Noosa, I took the opportunity to explore my personal memories from many times spent here. The Noosa National Park shines like a beacon of hope in amongst the development and holiday haven that is such a happy place for so many of us.

Remembering Paradise is an ode to our precious earth; often using places that have personal connection as my muse. Noosa National Park provides the perfect symbolism and the Pandanus trees the perfect muse to capture my thoughts on our impact on earth; painting the landscape as an arcadian ideal; redolent of a time and place when man had little impact on the earth and its atmosphere, a filtered view through trees toward paradise.

“The Pandanus Trees the focus of my view like wise custodians gazing out over paradise in the distance, standing on chunks of rock; blinded by glaring light, holding the ideal in view; highlighting the threat of climate change on our fragile and precious environment in the age of Anthropocene.”
