Mythologies operate in an individual’s mind and societies alike; they depict self-image, cross-cultural views and create potent tensions of changing societies and history. Danielle's paintings begin a discussion between mythology and portraiture as a means to challenge identity and persona construction. Danielle, one of seven sisters, found a profound connection to the Matrifocal Goddess myths of ancient Greece. Her surreal earthly mythscapes are comprised of multiple images from her travels and the inhabiting figures narrate her wavering relationship with her sisters.
