Daniel Park creates work in the figurative tradition but with a modern sensibility that references a certain zen-like aura and an intriguing use of symbolism. His figures appear hewn from smooth blocks of stone or granite emerging organically and flowing upward.
Their patination subtle yet possessing a richness and depth that evokes great time worn monuments and
statues of the past.
Daniel Park is an artist and architect now living in Pietrasanta, Italy while maintaining his architectural practice in New York City. Daniel’s unique talents stem from his childhood experience building his family residence, his life-long immersion in the visual arts, and time spent living and art-making in Italy and the San Francisco Bay Area. Daniel studied architecture and fine arts at Arizona State University and Syracuse University and received a degree in architecture from the former, graduating Magna Cum Laude and first in his class in the College of Environmental Design.
Daniel works in marble, bronze, plaster and mixed media assemblage on wood panels. His work uses the human body, mundane objects, symbols, and natural materials as metaphors to depict various states of personal and collective transition. He represents the body as both vessel and material for the recombination and transformation of elements, ideas, and personae.
“My work often speaks of the processes of dissolution, extraction, and decay, and of the riches to be found both in self discovery and in falling into the abyss”.
Daniel's works have been exhibited in galleries and public institutions in San Francisco and Oakland, CA as well as in New York. Daniel first came to Pietrasanta in the mid 90’s after living in Florence for several years. He studied marble sculpting there with Pasquale Martini and worked in clay at the studio of Roberta Giovannini.
He returned to Pietrasanta in spring of 2021 and is now a member of the Studio d’Arte Tre Luci.
