Painter of the Invisible

SHABAKA HUTCHINGS, Nat Brut Archive, June 1, 2019

Visually investigating the limits of verbal and written communication in expressing the myriad possibilities of the emotional realm has been a fixation of artists since time immemorial. Daniela Yohannes’s work deals intimately with this void. She constructs images that invite us into a world in which human activity is acutely nuanced. The onlooker is allowed space within her art. We are given reach to shift our paradigms; to encompass a view of history that is multi-layered, yet emphasises universality. Her work seems to strive towards a unifying view of the human complex.
