A Beauty Eclipsed
A Beauty Eclipsed
April 19–May 10, 2023
Join us on April 19 from 4 to 7 pm for the opening reception for artist Daniel Du's exhibition A Beauty Eclipsed.
Daniel Du’s A Beauty Eclipsed captures the tension between our longing for order against the pressing realities of life. By juxtaposing the intimate with the public, the sacred against the profane, the obscuring of beauty with the grotesque, and the depiction of hurried living versus slow ritual, Daniel aims to evoke wonder and curiosity through his art over these everyday mysteries.
Drawing from his life in China, the United States, and now Canada, Daniel constructs the illusion of three-dimensional landscapes within still life in oil and plays with light and shadow to draw the viewer into impossible spaces.
