Daniel Brophy

I grew up in New Jersey, USA, immersed in an urban environment. Painting became a way to slow down time, to create something tangible about a particular experience or emotion. Painting allows me to set an anchor for the mind and to take a closer look at something. My paintings often express themes from my past, observations on everyday-life, and reflections on how humans construct meaning in their lives. My recent works in also embody my experience of moving to Denmark with my family.
My artistic practice involves working on several paintings at a time. When developing a new work, I routinely put down my ideas for a painting in writing, followed by a series of sketches. My ideas or scenarios come through many portals: a train window, a memory from childhood, a stage-set from a movie, a moment in history, a room in my home. I often blend the representational image with the abstract image, making works that are textural both in density of line and thickness of paint. I use methods of painting, drawing, silk-screening, etching, and collage.
