Daniel Dove, “Odeon”

 

Daniel Dove Artist Statement

My paintings depict structures such as playscapes, reconstructed plane fuselages, and junk sculptures: all conglomerations of distinct parts.  My process is similarly amalgamated, using photography, virtual 3D computer models, and physical dioramas as source material.  I employ many methods of paint application, bringing my work closer to multi-styled collage, while other aspects (light and spatial illusion) pull toward a more traditional unity.  By combining observational fidelity with obvious facture, I utilize painting’s unique capacity for self-reflection while depicting places and objects that embody our failed dreams of endless pleasure and security.
