Danielle Thompson – Bio

Danielle Thompson uses the camera as a means to explore psychological space. Her work is distinguished by its exploration of the emotive power of colour, with images moving from warm desertscapes, nudes in cool blues and purples, to vivid golds and blues of the sea. Her beguiling images walk a fine line between the abstract and literal, reminding us of nature's inherent power to transport us beyond the real to an experience of the surreal or sublime.

Thompson has been exhibiting since the early 1990s, and has been the recipient of many arts residencies and commissions. Her work has featured in solo and group exhibitions, including in the Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Australian Centre for Photography, Gold Coast City Art Gallery, Melbourne Art Fair, Bendigo Art Gallery, and Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery. Her photographs are held in major private and public collections, including the Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Artbank and Macquarie Bank Art Collection.
