Daniel Kaufman Color Sprites

Daniel Kaufman Color Sprites is an original manipulated wax on panel painting.  It is signed on the front, titled and dated on the back.

“Decades beyond childhood, Daniel Kaufman has found a use for crayons that can only be described as transformative. Melting stick after stick over a surface, dribbling, dripping and pooling like some wax-drunk Pollock, Kaufman allows his kid-stuff encaustic to accrue until it’s stretching across white surfaces like rainbow colored galaxies, or, even more gloriously, seeping and crystallizing all over the picture plane like molten cloisonné. Describing the results of Kaufman’s work intensive technique as “butterfly wings on acid” only begs the question: Who’s tripping, you or the butterfly?” -Nationally renowned art critic Peter Frank, art reviewer for the LA Weekly

Description

Daniel Kaufman Color Sprites is an original manipulated wax on panel painting.  It is signed on the front, titled and dated on the back.

“Decades beyond childhood, Daniel Kaufman has found a use for crayons that can only be described as transformative. Melting stick after stick over a surface, dribbling, dripping and pooling like some wax-drunk Pollock, Kaufman allows his kid-stuff encaustic to accrue until it’s stretching across white surfaces like rainbow colored galaxies, or, even more gloriously, seeping and crystallizing all over the picture plane like molten cloisonné.

Apprenticing himself to the internationally exhibited “painter of the unconscious”, Max Shertz, Daniel began to appreciate the underpinnings of art and his own consciousness. Whereas photography began on the surface, painting involved transcending the surface and giving expression to the source of all creativity, what Max calls the “Inner Artist.” Daniel’s efforts to create art are now concerned with stilling the mind of preconceptions , silencing the ever-dominating ego, and going beyond personal fears to arrive at a completely humbling and liberating art.

In the words of Robert Levy, prominent Los Angeles art appraiser and collector, “Daniel’s work, at once beautiful and challenging to behold…is original and unique, with a jeweler’s delight in detail and a simultaneously macrocosmic effect that makes his best pieces enjoyable from a distance or very close up.” Daniel’s encaustic (melted wax) paintings have been exhibited in museums, numerous galleries and are in over two hundred private collections nationwide.
