‘Endangered’ (detail) Mixed media on canvas, 2018

Welcome to dellarees.com

Born in the Manawatu, Della lived and worked in Britain for nearly thirty years before recently returning home to Aotearoa New Zealand.

1994 Graduated BA Hons. Fine Art from Liverpool John Moores University, UK., gaining her Fine Art Masters in 2011 from Sir John Cass School of Art, Media and Design, London, UK.

Della’s practice combines and re-purposes materials and techniques to create new aesthetic forms and intriguing interventions. Using a multidisciplinary approach the context and concept of each project grows organically, dictating the final outcome. Past projects have responded to a particular space or location, exploring concepts around human impact on the environment. Ephemeral or transitory in nature and sometimes located outside the conventional art space, their appearance and disappearance intended not only to provoke a response but also to engage a wider audience.

Exhibiting regularly since 1994, currently living and working in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand.
