statement from the artist
Daniel paints with imagination but not from imagination.
Each landscape painting is inspired from an actual place.
He creates composition in a simplified form with designs of
shapes and patterns found in the nature world. You could
speculate his designs are influenced by Fauvism. Daniel is
definitely a colorist. With a dry-brush technique, he
applies acrylic paints in layers to develop bold vivid colors
to bring out eye-catching contrast in his designs. It is his
own whimsical interpretation of each individual scene that
sets his paintings apart from typical landscape painting.
