Daniele Matalon is a citizen of the world. She was born in France, near Italy, and grew up exposed to the Italian and French masters’ works all around her. While later making Paris her home, she traveled extensively in Tuscany, the Cradle of the Renaissance. It is not surprising, then, while presently living in Southern California, she has turned her energies to painting and sculpture, drawing upon her formative years in Europe as well as the sights and sounds of the world she has explored during the last 20 years.One can say that the world and all its peoples are her palette. Her work with Man, with Woman, really distinguishes her representation of the human form in all its sensuality.
