Project Description

Daniel Brice

In his abstract paintings and prints, Daniel Brice explores both the physicality and the intellectual and emotional resonance of color.  Based in sun-drenched Southern California, he translates the multi-hued blues of the bright Pacific Ocean and the lush reds, yellows, oranges, and greens of the local flora into the richly colored lines and rectangles that dominate his compositions.  The surfaces of his paintings range from almost transparent to thickly worked and often stretch across multiple panels, lending an almost sculptural quality to his works.  Brice works in layers, overlapping variously sized rectangular planes of color to create a constantly shifting visual field, a minimal rectilinear language implying vast spatial expanses.

L.A. Times Art Review: Charles Arnoldi at Rosamund Felsen
Charles Arnoldi is now widely regarded for his paintings, but in his early career his works were linked to the great painting debates of the era. A retrospective body of 1970s works by Arnoldi is on display at the Rosamund Felsen Gallery. The exhibition brings attention to a theme that became consistent throughout the artist’s career: Blurring boundaries between painting, sculpture, abstraction and representation.

Artsy Editorial: Five Very Different Shows at Five Great Galleries
From London to Los Angeles, Artsy features five galleries whose exhibitions are garnering attention with emerging and mid-career artists. Daniel Brice’s third solo show at Western Projects includes several large paintings expressing the beauty of California landscapes and the Pacific Ocean.
