DANIEL MCCLELLAN

After completing his BFA at National Art School in 2017, Daniel worked towards establishing a practice that would give him the freedom to keep his work evolving, while remaining cohesive. Working serially along a spectrum from observation to pure abstraction, Daniel views each composition as a step in an ever- evolving puzzle that are parts of a larger whole. Daniel is interested in seeing the diverse outcomes possible given a tight system, and how diverse outcomes can sit together and affect each other. His practice is informed by ideas from mathematics, physics, music and philosophy. He had his first solo show at the end of 2019, and it was titled ‘fischerandom’ after a variant of chess, something he views as a great analogy for painting. Since then, he has been busy in the studio, continuing his painting practice as well as commencing studies in Physics in 2020

"I draw from nostalgic memories of my own childhood and create vibrantly coloured and robustly textured works. I am informed and ispired by TV documenteries, scenic Playstation 1 games, and early cel animation cartoons, I would say, my paintings and sculptures explore pre-millenia aesthatics."
