"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious." - Albert Einstein
I was highly impressed by his work, by the atmosphere that his drawings were creating at the first glance and the immediate transposition to other time and space...more mysterious, more mystical and full of symbols. In the moment when you were getting closer to the drawings another Universe was revealed, populated by rich details, lines, shapes, systems, diagrams and matrixes, universal structures and biological elements, all combined with such mastery and dedication that you couldn't resist to study them for a while. The aesthetics of his art is inspired by the drawings that accompany the scientific and philosophical theories, usually describing diagrams, systems and structures, human anatomy; being interested in self awareness, philosophy, cellular automata, phase transitions, time travel, mystical behaviours at atomic and sub-atomic levels, consciousness, he gives a self interpretation of the symbols and theories and creates this beautiful symbolistic imagery.
Having the chance to have a brief discussion with Daniel and his wife Paula, I discovered an interesting man, passionate about his work and his involvement with other artistic areas such as public art and music. Together with his beautiful and mysterious wife they have a music project called "Crystal Radio" that "sounds like a haunted western about ghosts and dreams, where Ennio Morricone meets David Lynch", as Paula said.
The exhibition is hosted by the Oxholm Gallery, a contemporary art gallery, located in the heart of Nørrebro in Copenhagen. The gallery consists of two showrooms: the Gallery located in Ravnsborggade 5, and Oxholm HALL located in Ravnsborggade 6. Oxholm Gallery represents and showcases works by up-and-coming as well as established artists with both local and international backgrounds. If you want to know more about Oxholm Gallery check their website at www.gallerioxholm.dk and their Facebook page.
The exhibition will end October 4th, 2014. I warmly recommend you to go and see it if you are in Copenhagen, and visit Daniel's website where you can see many more mesmerising pieces of art.
Have a nice week! :)
