Painting




Close

Daniel is currently working on the element series.

The elements series is based on found or made objects that include fabric, metal, stone, pasta, clay, carpet, rope and plastic. The objects grew into a library of shapes used as reference for paintings, and in some cases by assemblance became sculptures by themselves. These objects formed part of a study regarding natural shapes and the impermanence of matter - a way to find coherence between objects that are unrelated but can act in a similar way. Deformation of the objects let's them fall into a new shape, modified by combination, or by applied force such as burning, submerging in water, twisting and crushing. This applied force makes the objects leave their original context and take on characteristics of other materials because of the underlying structure, ”Cloth becomes skin, stone becomes bone”, a recurrence of patterns in nature on a large and small scale.
