Daniel Gibson: Pathfinders
Daniel Gibson’s compositions densely juxtapose a variety of bright, saturated hues, forming large flowers and butterflies, as well as their ecosystems. Raised in the Californian desert by two Mexican immigrants, Gibson’s practice refers to his cultural heritage through a series of recurring figures and forms. His expressive brush strokes vibrantly run through the works, charging the image with an intense energy that is then transmitted to the viewer. Gibson seeks to transgress beyond the hardships of immigration, exploring humanity by creating a dream-like scenery where reality and imagination merge.
