In my process as an artist, i try to create poetic abstract images, inspired by Nature as my muse, with a strong tendency towards minimalism.

One can see a wide landscape with a low horizon, or an empty place, with trunks reaching into the space, trees between the rocks, silhouettes in the movement, shadows in the space, shadows in the sky. Together, it's both chaos and harmony, noise and silence, earthly and ethereal, full and empty, fragile and powerful.

It is a form of handwriting, in which the strokes and rhythm of the brush convey an important statement.

It's comparable to a musical score. Just like a musician, artists have to organise the chaotic movement and capture the dynamic balance. Instead of musical instruments, they use pencils, brushes, pens, crayons, and so on...

My art could be described as a poetic visualisation of the sound of music.

In this way, my work is an attempt at abstraction.

French-Dutch artist Danielle Vidal-Ausseil has lived in the Netherlands for decades, where she has earned her stripes in the world of drawings and as a member of the Dutch Circle of Draughtsmen.
In her home town of Perpignan in southwest France, Danielle studied Economics at the University of Perpignan and Arts at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. After completion she gradually devoted herself more and more to the arts.
In 1986 she had her first exhibition in a gallery in perpignan. A review of this exhibition was entiteld "Dans la mouvance des arbres", "In the movement of the trees".
Now, more than thirty years ago, "space and movement" remains a recurring theme in all facets of her work, the essence of her seach.
She creates inner, monumental landscapes of an organic and abstract nature : rolling stones in a desert landscape, moving trees in the wind or landscapes that provide access to another reality as doors.
Danielle was inspired by contemporary artists of various genres, including Richard Diebenkorn, Cy Twombly or Anselm Kiefer.
