Danielle Rubi-Dentzel received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has been taking photos and living in many places since; northern and southern California, Paris, France, coastal Nayarit, Mexico, and Marfa, Texas. Her work has been prolific and varied over the last ten years; it includes architectural, portrait, nature, music, and life photography, produced for a number of publications, gallery shows, and museum exhibitions. Adding more facets to her already dynamic œuvre is Rubi-Dentzel’s traveling lifestyle. Growing up in a Swiss/Californian household with parents in the travel business, she learned to maintain distant friendships and personal connections to many parts of the world. That is how it still is. Though now based in Paris, Rubi-Dentzel travels almost constantly and her work depicts the many micro worlds she is part of. Through it all runs a continuity of mood that is at once soft, intentional, furtive, mathematical, and rich. Having an acute eye for patterns in nature, fleeting gestural moments, and visual coincidences, Rubi-Dentzel handles her subjects like a romantic scientist. An artist in residence at La Porte Peinte in 2011, she participated in CaliforNoyers.
