For several decades, Daniel has explored various mediums and the natural world – culminating in a diverse body of work. Mapping, site exploration and working with beeswax are increasingly important elements of his process.
Daniel’s sculptural artwork is an exploration of natural processes using found materials, on-site and in gallery settings. His installation work is a collaboration with nature: a dialogue between events and the materials. This ephemeral work is a response to place and time, reflecting the season and geographic location. A variety of materials are used in his sculptures, including branches, moss, rocks, forest floor debris – anything that lends itself to the piece being made. Daniel has recently collaborated with Andrea Bird on encaustic wall pieces that embrace this sensibility.
