Through my art, I want to increase respect for the environment, mutual tolerance and to overcome conflicts, despite the differences that make us unique.
It fascinates me that we are about 7 billion people and yet we are all individuals. With my paintings I express the unique value of each human being by using mainly animals to represent it.
Indeed, animals often dominate the scene. They are immersed in a myriad of colors and have a symbolic meaning to allow people to project themselves into them.
I combine abstract and figurative painting techniques and use semi-transparent colors in order to create one organic piece made out of several layers.
My goal is to arouse curiosity, create a sense of mystery and surprise, so that the viewer looks twice and asks himself: “Have I seen everything, or is there anything else to discover?”
Life is pure sensory perception, aesthetics, moving signs that create new life, these are the works of Daniela De Candia.
The bright and skilful color palette, are that of a painter, that cleverly ranges from intense colors such as loads of red, yellow, magenta and oranges, to the precious and refined ones of celestial, cyan, violet and greens. She fabulously explores an amazing tonal range.
