In this series, Danielle Nelisse presents abstract paintings that reflect her emotional responses to global climate change. Nelisse uses color and line to express her inner reflections about the complexities in dealing with urbanization, climate change, and natural disasters.
CLIMATE CHANGE series is concerned with how climate is changing due to the actions of people. Danielle’s Climate Change Series expresses “her inner reflections about the complexities in dealing with urbanization, climate change, and natural disasters.”
Bold-colored, dynamic and complex, her work makes it impossible to intellectualize an issue we so easily (and sometimes, readily) like to distance ourselves from. Instead, it invites us to deeply and courageously feel our feelings, and perhaps recognize that there is beauty even in sadness.
