Artist Statement - Daniel Romaine
‘Visions of landscapes and spiritual beings appear to me in dots, sometimes they are familiar and other times they are unknown.
It is as if my indigenous ancestors are creating the art through me. The visions are unpredictable and stay with me …… until they are painted. My main influences come from the shapes, colours and textures of the landscape.
With every new painting I challenge myself to a more difficult use of technique. I aspire to produce artworks that people look at and see the image as clearly as I do “Like a photo in the mind” and then feel the peaceful energy of the natural landscape that has been shaped by the elements over time.
I believe in my art and I am thankful for the amazing gift bestowed upon me. I accept my responsibility to my culture, I listen to my ancestors when I paint our ancient land.’
