Daniel North creates images that refuse to stay still. Movement is his muse, movement is the purpose. His prolific production of nearly 200 paintings per year has garnered the attention of galleries and museums across North America.
I like. Especially the one with the three spheres in the sky. Is that another Missouri landscape? Thinking that it is when I saw it, (and since I'm from there) it made me think of the three spheres representing my living in and returning to MO at different phases of my life. I'm like the small sphere that starts out low and sees the world in a limited way and then as I see more and more of the world I get bigger and move away from there (like the top sphere that is leaving the paper). What is the meaning to you, or where you thinking anything in particular while working on it?
Looking towards Crowley's Ridge near Bloomfield. Remember anytime you see three repetitive symbols in my work it represents my children. In this instance they are growing-up away from the place and theology of my own youth. - DN
Daniel, these are very interesting. Some of your work is becoming minimalist. I wish I could see them in real life for these photos don't do justice to the experience.
I explored a more extreme level of minimalism, in my work for a number of years, when I lived in Missouri. As my work progresses, I suppose everything comes full circle. - DN
These are wondeful. Very exciting and unexpected to see these appear without notice! Very hard to choose the favourite, REALLY hard, but in the end I like the simplicity of the fourth one, the blue and white. Have you a favourite in this series for whatever reason ?
Once a work is done, my mind is on the next piece. I like them all for different reasons. The ones I choose are regularly for personal reasons - each work is created in the vacuum of the moment and wherever that time may take my mind. It is always interesting to discover which works are favored by others. - DN
I like these paintings (particularly the first, the second, fourth, and the last) but they just don't grip me like most of your others do. I like it more when you are complex with your paintings rather than broad strokes (like the sixth), but it's just my personal opinion.
