Natural Process

A continuous, one-directional intrinsic trans-formation typifies Daniela Yaniv-Richter’s works over the years. Each chapter in her oeuvre evolves and derives from the previous one. In the current chapter, partly presented in the exhibition and more extensively in the accompanying catalogue, change is granted a pivotal role. Focusing on a single form each time, she diligently explores the totality of sculptural options embodied by it. The resulting series exposes a personal process of search, liberation, freedom and meditation. Moreover, the ‘evolutionary’ process of her sculptures attests to her approach to the nature surrounding her, which serves as an inexhaustible source of inspiration, both in her choice of a work substance found in nature and in her reference to qualities such as organicity and amorphousness which are associated with the natural world.
