Ones to Watch: Stella Danalis


Informed by a strong design aesthetic, artist Stella Danalis’ latest works are an investigation into the folded form as a vehicle for colour. Stella’s current practice explores the pictorial language of geometric abstraction, with a specialised interest in colours and their interactions. Through these works she is able to embrace her passion for colour, form and composition, letting geometric narratives unfold between colours and shapes. The result is stunning works that elicit a sense of calm, order and serenity.
