Project Description

b. 1961, Glendale, CA

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.

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.

Los Angeles Times: Daniel Brice at Western Project
Painting’s death has periodically (and even ritually) been claimed ever since the camera was invented more than 170 years ago. But Brice’s work reminds us of the coincidence between that unfounded assertion of mortality and the slow, steady emergence of abstraction as something beyond the otherwise wondrous capacity of the lens.
