There Was Evening

There Was Evening, 2017 by Daniel Kaufman is an original manipulated wax on panel painting.  It is signed on the front, titled and dated on the back.  Also referred to as an “Encaustic Painting” as it is made with wax which is one of the world’s oldest art forms.

“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
