Beautiful Mountain

daniella mooney

Our new exhibition in the Voorkamer features a collection of drawings and paintings by the well-known sculptor Daniella Mooney. It has been a year of new hikes, new mountains, harder routes and much change for Mooney. Focusing more on her painting and less on sculpture has allowed the artist to loosen up and experiment with colour. Moving away from the earth tones related to sculpting stone and wood, Mooney’s new 'painting eyes' see the Western Cape mountains in vivid technicolour. Beautiful Mountain is a call to the quest; to push the boundaries of all the things she thought she knew so well.
