Water paintings on display at University Hospital

One of the pieces on display at University Hospital.

Danielle Eubank is an award-winning artist who gave a keynote address to the Michigan Water Environment Association in June 2019.

She has been on four international sailing expeditions and painted every ocean on the planet to raise awareness about the oceans (and lakes) and climate change.

Her large oil on linen paintings are emotive abstract portraits of specific bodies of water — and an ongoing exhibition at Michigan Medicine features the Arctic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.

She creates patterns within patterns, representing vertical stacks of rhythms. The undulating forms, such as water ripples, oil slicks and refuse, combined with the memories that water evokes, makes her work eye-opening, yet soothing and sensual.
