Texan-Mexican artist who explores the connections between science, nature and fiction, mainly through textile and photographic art. Her work is the result of collaboration with friends and acquaintances, making references to literature, art history and pop culture. In her most recent project entitled Malaise, Daniela takes the novel Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley as a starting point to find the relation between the geography of an ill body and the last breaths of a glacier soon to be extinct.
Seeking to create connections when feeling out of place, Daniela has done artist residencies in Iceland, Spain, France, the Rocky Mountains of Canada and the United States, thanks to the repeated support of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts of Mexico and institutions like the Museé du Quai Branly and the Art Museum of Denver as well as independent spaces such as Cherryhurst House in Houston, TX.
Her work has been acquired for public collections such as the Collection of the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington D.C, the Museum of Latin American Art in California, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Denver Art Museum and San Diego MOPA in the United States and the Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo, Norway.
Since 2017, she is a fellow of the National System of Creators with the support of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts of Mexico (SISTEMA NACIONAL DE CREADORES, FONCA-CONACULTA) and is a Member of Taller30 since 2019.
