2013 | NYC | Artist
Daniela Antonelli lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. In her process oriented work, she continously revisits the notion of "craft" and investigates art as a cultural manifestation. Antonelli's works essentially consist of intricate drawings made up of dots and lines as well as objects elaborated with primary materials such as stones, wood, seeds, shells and leather. With a singular approach to drawing and sculpture, she seeks what is durable through the combination of natural with artificial elements, and also connects different universes through a mental and a manual process.
