About the Item

Caduceus, 2011, Daniel Blagg, Oil on canvas, 80 x 60" By meticulously depicting forgotten road signs and roadside debris, Daniel Blagg invites his viewers to re-consider objects that are often ignored or forgotten. He masterfully crafts his paintings to create moody, unsettling compositions that feel desolate and neglected through his detailed depictions. Quick brushstrokes or soft washes of paint form fields of grass, distant mountains, and stretches of roads, while sharp shadows and the lack of figures heighten the feeling of loneliness and seclusion in these landscapes. Blagg’s representations evoke the work of Edward Hopper through a similar use of light and dark contrasts, as well as an emphasis on urban subject matter. However, unlike Hopper, Blagg’s explorations ominously foretell of the effects of the passage of time. Blagg’s paintings have been exhibited in over sixty prominent shows across the United States, and his work is collected by numerous institutions, including the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi, the Old Jail Arts Center, Shell Oil, Fidelity Investments, and The Coca-Cola Company. Daniel Blagg is represented at Artspace111 in Fort Worth, Texas.
