Gisela McDaniel

Gisela McDaniel is a diasporic indigenous Chamorro artist. Her work is based in healing from her own sexual trauma and reflecting the healing of women/non-binary people who have survived sexual trauma. Interweaving assemblages of audio, oil painting, and motion-sensored technology, McDaniel creates pieces that literally “talk back” to the viewer. She incorporates survivors’ voices to subvert traditional power relations and enable individual and collective healing. Based in Detroit, she received her BFA from the University of Michigan and is represented by Pilar Corrias in London.
