Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Another Liquid Sentence, Daniel Brice’s second solo show at the gallery.

Daniel Brice’s paintings are influenced by the minimalist environments of coastal California. They reference the hazy atmosphere above and in front of the earth, ocean, and sky. Their blurred boundaries translate to moody color fields with a simmering quietude, often grounded by abstract geometric form.

Returning to oil after a stretch of working with watercolor, Brice can invigorate his layering technique with a more tactile quality. The layers are built up on the paper so that his process is evident, with the finished surfaces acquiring a sleek sheen. All of his pieces begin with choosing a color and then, through intuition and color theory, Brice introduces each additional color to create supporting harmony or dissonance. The choices are poetic, even musical, and he ultimately strives to solve the puzzle each decision unlocks.

When viewing the finished piece, what first appears to be a minimal or monochromatic palette is then revealed to be built upon under-painting with a vast spectrum. Several works on view in Another Liquid Sentence are particularly reminiscent of the subtle complexity of the horizon line, mirroring the thin wide expanse where colors meet and blend. Others are darker, seemingly more internal, offering suggestions of formality. From brilliant blues to exploring shades of black, Brice’s paintings strive to be a reflection of the internal conversations one has while in a meditative state.

Daniel Brice has exhibited widely throughout the United States, including at Chiaroscuro Contemporary Art, Western Project, and Riverside Museum of Art. His work is featured in many public and private collections. He lives and works in California.
