Artist Statement

The creation of something is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.
The creative mind plays with objects it loves.
Carl Jung

Sandra Daniel's work is driven by the printmaking techniques and processes. In her monotypes, etchings, drypoints and multi-plate aquatints she spontaneously explores the endless possibilities of layering cut-out shapes against strongly juxtaposed colours.

These shapes originate from her personal interest in current and past social-cultural issues.

The result is usually full of surprises and manifests itself as a celebration of formal values such as; line, colour, shape (negative & positive), texture, proportion and composition.
