Throughout her career Rona Green has demonstrated an enduring interest in the figure and notably a dedication to the development of extraordinary hybrid characters. Fuelled by a fascination with the animal, Green explores ideas about persona, transformation and the absurd.

Danielle Creenaune  Luminous Fall  2022  woodcut on Somerset Satin White paper  101 x 80 cm.

Luminous Fall forms the expression of a new passage which attempts to capture the nuances and meaning of water. Deriving inspiration from the waterfalls and creeks in the Illawarra landscape and the small flowing creek outside Creenaune’s studio, the artist explores the different qualities of water in this work – movement, light, strength, fluidity, substance and flow – through vertical form and line.

Dianne Fogwell  Tempest  2023  linocut, pigmented ink  142 x 152 cm

“Tempest is a contemplation on global recent floods, their beauty and destruction and ponderings on our ability to take up the challenge of climate change.” –  Dianne Fogwell

We are delighted to share that Danielle Creenaune is showing at London Art Fair from 18 – 22 January.

Danielle’s works will be shown alongside several other artists as a represented artist of UK-based gallery CIRCLE Contemporary. Of her works, CIRCLE states:

“It begins with birds, not water. Danielle speaks of the rainforest birds near her home in Wollongong – meaning ‘sound of the sea’. The Illawarra region, south of Sydney, is home to over 350 species of birds including the mythical Lyrebird.

“It also begins with drawing. Drawing is an act of engagement – Danielle literally draws her way into her subject, observing the motifs and rhythms she finds in her surrounding wetlands and creeks. While making these drawings birdsong is ever-present. This soundscape is the invisible backdrop, unseen life, passing through each lithographic and woodcut print she makes.

“And now to water, the focus of a new body of work. For Danielle art and life coalesce and the mesmeric force of the great waterfalls of the Budderoo national park affect her deeply…

“Many times I felt the incidental flow of marks beyond my control, echoing the real life movement of water. I have found that over time, the energy and positive atmosphere of flowing water has become a reference point for me for healing and positivity and represents a grounding that comes with preserving green spaces in urban environments.”

London Art Fair was founded in 1989 by London’s Business Design Centre in Islington. Each year, the Fair welcomes over 100 leading galleries from the UK and around the world specialising in modern and contemporary art to over 20,000 visitors.

Danielle Creenaune and Marina Strocchi – ‘Arts in the Valley’

Image: Danielle Creenaune A thousand echoes 2022 woodcut on Somerset Satin White paper  edition 10  101 x 80 cm


We are delighted to share that Danielle Creenaune and Marina Strocchi have had their works included in ‘Arts in the Valley’ in the Kangaroo Valley Hall over the NSW long weekend September 30 – October 3.

Our objectives are simple – to assist artists while bringing some of the best contemporary art that matters from around the nation to the Valley and surrounds that speaks about national, regional and local issues.

Our goal – to continue to grow as a national contemporary arts event while retaining local and regional flavour.

Since 2007, Arts in the Valley has brought some of the finest musicians, artists and writers in Australia to Kangaroo Valley for our concerts, exhibitions and festivals.

Part of the charm of the valley lies in its location and many of the concerts have been held in private houses offering an intimate scale for music making. Sculpture in the Valley has also been held in a variety of private houses generously loaned for the occasion, often with views across the valley. – Arts in the Valley

Danielle Creenaune – International Print Exhibitions

Above image: Danielle Creenaune  Near ground  2022  lithograph on somerset satin white paper  edition 12 43 cm x 37 cm

Following her 2022 exhibition, Inside Water at Australian Galleries Sydney, Danielle Creenaune is currently exhibiting in two international print exhibitions.

Having lived abroad for the last 18 years, Australian born artist, Danielle Creenaune, worked out of her print studio in Barcelona and recently she returned to live in Australia in 2019. Her central motivation “is the intrinsic dialogue between landscape and people, how landscape is perceived through our library of pre-lived experiences and the ways in which this is reflected through the visual language of gesture.”

Danielle is currently exhibiting as part of the 3rd International Lithography Litho Kielce, Poland.

This year, when I started the selection of the best prints sent to Kielce, I imagined all the stones that were used to create these unique works. And on the other side of this process, the imagination of the creators appears, often elusive, often undefined, looking for a form to express the inexpressible. And from this dichotomy something new – wonderful arises. Paradoxically, the effort put into the preparation of a new matrix seems inadequate to the lightness of the works created. The hard surface transforms into the most delicate artistic structure. Perhaps that is why lithography is compared to painting. And it is not only about the possibility of showing a gesture, but also about the very close contact of the creator with the matter.
