Bobier, Danielle

Danielle Bobier’s minimalistic oil and cold wax compositions draw on early visual memories of cartoons, comics and 8-bit games. Populated by house-shaped icons, auras, physiographic and meteorological phenomena, these symbolistic landscapes touch on primal anxieties, representing the role of internal worlds when coping with the inevitability of death. Through the process of motif repetition, Bobier explores the spiritual experience and the psychic environment amidst anxiety, loss, and grief. The resulting paintings offer iterative meditations on mortality, detachment, balance, pleasure-seeking and escapism in addition to examining the impact of colour relationships on atmosphere and emotional resonance.
