Cecilia Danell (b. 1985)

Cecilia Danell is a Swedish artist based in Galway. Her practice is process based, where accumulated research into landscape and the psychology of place is coupled with a strong interest in materiality and making. For the past ten years, Danell has returned to her family farm in Sweden to walk and gather research material for paintings. This experience of being in the landscape, along with the physical process of painting in the studio, results in works that detach themselves from the photographic source material. 

Cecilia Danell is the 2022 recipient of the RHA Hennessy Craig Award for painting, the ESB Keating Award at the 190th RHA Annual Exhibition, a 2017 Arts Council Next Generation Award and the 2011 Wexford Arts Centre Emergence Award and has received several bursary and project awards from the Arts Council.
