Lithography and silkscreen on handmade paper
Edition of 50 from the Portfolio Dayton Visual Art Center (DVAC) CSA 2018

“This piece is a print done with first a split fountain litho (that’s two colors blended together in one pass) followed by a gold layer in screenprint. I wanted to incorporate the play between a traditional farm share CSA with that of The Co’s Community Supported Art CSA—that’s how a seed bank fits in. I’m fascinated by these bunkers that contain almost every species of edible plants, and what would happen should we need to call on these reserves. Questions arise about the sustainability of our earth and possibilities beyond it.”

Danielle works in drawing, painting, printing, paper cutting, installations, and tableaus of small organic objects. Sourcing material directly from the environments she visits, she incorporates site-specific field research into geographical happenings, direct interaction with the landscape and its inhabitants, and meditative mark-making. Akin to a botanist collecting live plant specimens in the wild, or an astronomist mapping locations beyond the earth’s atmosphere, she presents us with images of the meeting place between the physical environment we encounter and the narratives of a place.
Danielle lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Printmaking and Drawing at Wright State University. She received her MFA in printmaking from the University of Iowa in 2006. Her work is held in public and private collections worldwide.
