Inel Date is an artist based between the Central West and Central Coast NSW. Her works are a response to the surrounding landscape and changing seasons. With a Masters of Arts degree and many years as a Visual Art Educator she is inspired by documenting and responding to place. With her move to full-time studio practice her work is centred on the simple joy of watching the seasonal play of light and shadow, observing shifting seasons or building on past memories. In this way she communicates a sense of place that resonates with the viewer.
Inspiration is found in all landscapes she passes through – rural, urban and water scapes. Inel seeks to understand and document place in a particular moment in time, communicating its complex narrative to the viewer. Her recent body of work swings between still abstracted landscapes with pared back seasonal colours or otherwise richly layered exploratory surfaces that focus on mark making, serendipitously creating patterns and making sense of place.
