Dan Covert is interested in eliciting responses from the juxtaposition of order and abstraction. He composes shapes to appear structured yet spontaneous, and his painting practice is a paradoxical exercise of using analogue means to pursue a perfection that, in reality, can only be obtained with digital or mechanical processes. There’s a beauty in the fact that no matter how hard he tries to hide his hand and its gestures, it will always be visible to the naked eye. Dan has developed a graphic language of organic and decisive forms that he methodically and gradually evolves over time.
