Original oil paintings of the Australian landscape
Bruce Daniel is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Sydney, Australia. He works in visual art, music composition and performance, theatrical writing, theatre design and story writing.
The current focus of his visual art is the Australian landscape, both outback and coastal.
“We all belong to the landscape. We are all connected to it and influenced by it. In my work I am attempting to explore and express that connection – to delve deep below the surface of things, to get in touch with the universal.” On these pages you will find Bruce’s latest artworks, current and previous exhibitions.
ACCIDENTAL NOMAD: ART ON THE ROAD
COVID-enforced sojourn on the New South Wales coast. Artworks along the way.
COASTAL EXPOSURE: ROCKS FROM DEEP TIME
Solo exhibition held at Art Space on The Concourse, Chatswood, 2 – 13 June 2021.
The exhibition featured new oil paintings focusing on the coastline of New South Wales.
The Coastal Exposure series explores the jagged coastal edge of our continent where the crust is exposed by the sea. My aim, as always, was to connect with the spiritual power of landscape. Locations are primarily on the coast of NSW, which contains some of the oldest known geological formations on earth. Following on from my 2020 solo show Yunta Landscapes, which featured the vast landscapes and ancient rock formations of the South Australian outback, the coastal landscapes in this series are vastly different from but intrinsically connected to the outback – both physically and spiritually.
Solo exhibition held at ARO Gallery, Darlinghurst NSW, Jan 29 – Feb 2 2020.
