Artist Danae Anderson in her studio
Movement and music vitally inflect the improvised choreography of the paintings. The relationship with the "canvas" is intense and instinctive, accessing and allowing marks that arise
through the uncensored conscious. Chance associations arise from the immediacy/physicality of intuition and observation. The residue of these actions reveal a visual narrative that
documents and honors human experience. A deep overlay of play, language, events, dreams, objects, the self, the ordinary, sense/nonsense, the seen/unseen, the ancestors and
progeny, memory and daily experience is recorded.
In indigenous cultures, things done (the making of objects: art), and things happening (music and dance) are one.
Action / process become the principal mode of thought. The artist
is called to respond to things happening and so documents the imperatives of life.
