Danica Chappell Biography

Danica Chappell is a visual artist based in Melbourne who has a curiosity for spatial-temporal abstraction. Danica works with the malleability of analogue photography to investigate abstraction and concrete concepts. Entangled in an activity of process Danica re-presents materials, form and colour derived from ‘darkroom haptic’ actions. Crafted in the blind space of the colour darkroom the non-figurative constructions reveal the permutations of a tactile engagement between process, the body and materials.

Danica completed her Masters of Fine Art (by Research) at Victorian College of the Arts where she questioned conventions and material condition of the photograph.
