Chroma. Flora. transports the viewer to another world, where colors seem too saturated to be real and the bizarre shapes of plants feel outlandish. But the places in these paintings are very real and Danika Ostrowski’s work reminds us how remarkable the beauty of our Earth is. Danika has long been fascinated with the color and plant life in desert environments. This series is an in-depth exploration of these two subjects.
Danika paints landscapes en-plein-air and creates in-studio work based on photographs, sketches and memories. She currently lives and works in Austin, Texas creating commissioned paintings and developing her own series of work which she exhibits throughout the country. Danika is a dedicated advocate for the preservation of public lands. She uses her platform as an artist to fundraise for the National Parks Foundation and spread awareness of conservation efforts. Danika has been featured as top emerging talent by Western Art Collector and Southwest Art.
