Among the European artists, the works of Theo Danella stand out by their lightness. An aesthetic that no longer is commonplace in our time: Winning and friendly, sometimes even funny. Here, with dignified restraint. Sometimes, loud, but not shrill.
The style of Theo Danella’s work is partly by hand, but this is by no means technology-abstinent. On the contrary! Despite references to the traditional painting contemporary aids, the world of color sometimes from the Flemish early Baroque, the grain here and there reminiscent of Gulbransson, show how the artist tries to be transported into the present. There are also scanned drawings in mimeographed ornamental arrangement in addition to digital sketches, and “mixed-media” and digital “computer painting” (the painting board under the “mouse-pen”) square. Painted beauties photographed before – “mounted” – garden fence. Collagen own drawings, integrated with vector-like graphics or images in the ink style.
