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.
