Daniela Zeilinger works at the intersection of different artistic disciplines, especially painting and photography. She creates her images – large-format analog photographs – using various media in a multi-layered process of transformation and translation. Her work questions the ontology of images, in reference to a real/virtual pictorial space. In the confrontation of photographic construction with qualities attributed to painting – e.g. gesture, traces of corporeality, haptics – lies an in-between space that can neither be clearly assigned to photography nor to painting.
