Daniella Pateman's collage-based work is influenced by photomontage and storytelling. She uses images to create realistic environments with surreal details. Pateman's pieces encourage viewers to explore and discuss and to participate in the narrative. Part social commentary, part allegory - her work is nuanced with humour, anecdotes, and pop culture references. Pateman has shown her work in various group shows at galleries and events in Toronto, including Nuit Blanche and the Emily Harding Gallery.
