Danna Crous is a young South African Artist working in mediums which highlight material and found objects, often blurring boundaries between painting and sculpture. Growing up in a rural area in Kwa-Zulu Natal, power lines and urbanized areas were scarce in a day-to-day life.
Moving to Stellenbosch and studying in 2016 as a young adult, the transition was found to be intensive. This acts as the initial influences to her body of work, as she becomes interested and fascinated with the industrial landscape. Perhaps because it was so new. There is a sensitivity to these urbanized areas which emerges in her work. It acts as the driving force behind her process, as she responds to everchanging environmental conditions, and feelings of tension, placement and displacement which coincide with it.
