“When I first started painting again as an adult my work relied on outlines of abstract shapes but the lines weren’t as decisive and clean. It frustrated me at the time that I didn’t have the technique to achieve the vision I had in my head for the work. Years later, it’s super satisfying to be able to make a piece like this, where I revisit the ideas in my first works with the technique, forms, and ability of a more developed artist. From a technical standpoint this piece is the hardest painting I’ve made to date.” — Dan Covert
Dan Covert (b. 1981) works in a graphic language of organic and decisive forms. His work explores structuring and ordering these abstract shapes so they appear composed, yet spontaneous. His process leverages digital techniques to sketch and iterate forms which he ultimately renders with meticulous detail using analog means. Covert lives in Brooklyn, NY.
