About

sky, blue, bright, sun, water, romantic, reflection, Hamptons, marsh, artistic influence: Andrew Wyeth BIOGRAPHY Daniel Pollera was born in 1953 in the coastal town of Freeport, New York. His interest in art began at a very young age gravitating toward drawing and painting the surrounding coastline of Long Island. After a short study at SUNY Farmingdale in Commercial Art, he left to enter the family business. For almost 15 years, Daniel took a sabbatical from painting, but this didn’t void his love for the sea. He obtained a Captain’s License in 1977 from the United States Coast Guard and took passengers for hire on the open ocean. Through this experience and visual knowledge he was drawn to begin his painting again. Although Daniel is primarily self-taught he worked with Frances Norris Streit, a portrait and mural artist, assisting her on a 14’ x 30’ historical mural for the Roslyn Savings Bank. He also studied with Everett Molinari, a well-respected President of the National Mural Society. Daniel splits his time between his home in East Quogue, Long Island, NY and Baldwin Harbor, Long Island, NY. These two places offer him inspiration which is the catalyst for his work. “I look for a dramatic setting, filled with light to draw awareness to the image”. Light in his paintings is what he is noted for; people say they wish they were there. blue, green, marsh, sky, qougue, boat, sail, sky, water, landscape, seascape, horizontal, Long Island, Hamptons, relax, vacation, artistic influences: Andrew Wyeth. ARTIST’S STATEMENT "We are only passing through this lifetime of ours. This is a revolving window of constant change and taking in the beauty from a visual perspective is fascinating and interesting; that is what fuels my passion. Living within close proximity to the salt marshes and shoreline has enabled me to capture a moment in time. I feel a deep connection with my subject and it constantly inspires me. I hope that I convey a feeling through my paintings that will be shared for generations and reflect our love for the local waters as they are today."
