Daniela Zeilinger was born in Linz, Austria. She lives and works in Vienna.


Daniela Zeilinger works at the interface of different artistic disciplines, especially painting and photography. Her images – large-format analogue photographs – are created using a variety of media in a multi-layered process of transformation and translation. Her work questions the ontology of images in reference to a real and/or virtual image space. In the confrontation of photographic construction with qualities attributed to painting – e.g. gesture, traces of physicality, haptic – lies an intermediate area that is neither clearly attributable to photography nor to painting.
