‘Painting for me is like creating a conversation, a memory, a yearning.’
Janine Daddo always wanted to be a painter. And she has fulfilled her dream – sharing her happiness with others.
She has become a highly successful painter, her success has resulted from her hard work. Her enthusiasm for life expressed in her joyous, colourful paintings emerges from one touched with tragedy. But sometimes we need to experience the darkness in order to appreciate the light.
The richness of her colours comes from her technique of layered surfaces, usually working in opposites, from darks to lights, from turquoise and jade to reds. The layering gives added texture, glimpses of underlying colours added variety, topped by a final glaze to express the wonderment of life. Her paintings are conversational and attractively packaged in seductive colours.
Janine has enjoyed sell-out exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne and Chicago, and her work is now enjoyed in private collections throughout Australia and as far afield as London, New York and Singapore. This work courtesy of 19 Karen Gallery.
