Gisela McDaniel

b. 1995, Bellevue, Nebraska


Born 1995 in Bellevue, Nebraska. Lives and works in New York.

Gisela McDaniel is a diasporic, Indigenous CHamoru artist who explores the effects of trauma, displacement and colonisation through portraiture and oral histories. Interweaving audio interviews, assemblage and oil painting, she intentionally incorporates the portrait sitters' voices in order to subvert the traditional power relations of artist and sitter. Working primarily with women and non-binary people who identify as Black, Micronesian, Indigenous to Turtle Island, Asian, Latinx, and/or mixed-race, her work disrupts and responds to the systemic silencing of subjects in fine art, politics and popular culture.
