“I start loose in a sketchbook, then migrate onto the computer where the sketched forms are refined and ordered, before I attempt to mimic those digital sketches with paint. Masks are never used in the painting process because I want the imperfections of the human hand to be felt, even if they are microscopic.” — Dan Covert
Dan Covert (b. 1981) is interested in pushing the emotional and formal limits of abstraction. Covert utilizes a graphic language of organic and decisive forms, and 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 and works in Brooklyn, NY.
