Artist StatementThese dynamic paintings refer to the architecture of the built environment and structures of new technology as these elements have altered the planet and human psychology with an increasingly complex set of tools. The haunting yet colorful images portray a futuristic world in which human civilization is subsumed within the topography of the land mass, surrounded by sea and sky devoid of human artifact.
Daniel Stuelpnagel has participated in more than 100 exhibitions coast to coast since 1998, and recently completed a two-year residency at Mill Centre Artist Studios in Hampden.
