Danielle Creme

United Kingdom / Switzerland

Danielle Creme's work is a mixture of realism and abstraction. It stems from the artist's deep need to connect with others and herself. In her oil on canvas portraits, figurative paintings and stone sculptures she explores the relationships between people. Her work captures the emotions and challenges that arise from these intimate exchanges.

Danielle Creme uses a modern, abstract, realistic style to explore the strength and vulnerability that people strive for and struggle with. Often themes of femininity and identity are explored, as well as loss, loneliness and indecision. The idea of duality, being torn apart and the deep emotional struggles that result are expressed through contrasts in choice of colour, texture and composition.
Each work tells its own story, forcing the viewer to confront the emotions depicted and reflect on their own strength and vulnerability.
