Concepts behind My Work
Hi! my name is Dan and I'm an abstract sculptor that uses a minimalist style to construct large-scale works of art.
Growing up, my father was a hard-working professional who created a business renovating and selling houses. As an adolescent working for my father and learning about the ins and outs of construction, I was taught that there is a “correct” way to build houses and create beautiful interiors. However, after finishing countless properties, I lost interest in building within a strict set of standards and guidelines.
During my time at St. Cloud State University and University of Minnesota, I began to explore and push these boundaries through art. Over the years, art has become not only a space for me to explore myself and my creativity, but it is also a passion that truly reflects my love for philosophy, form, and limitless possibilities.
I am happiest when I'm creating and I am so excited to share my ideas with you all!
