  • About the Artist

Daniel (1982) lives and works in Leiden, The Netherlands. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with exhibitions in the Museo de la Revolución, Havana; SOHD, Cobra Museum, Amstelveen; El Pez Soluble Gallery, Tequisquiapan; Booth Gallery, New York; The Who Gallery, London; Den Gallery, Kuwait City; Thinkspace, Los Angeles; and a duo show with Phillip Akkerman in The Hague. Daniel is co-founder of the artist initiative Arthouse which organizes myriad projects and runs two residencies (NL/MEX). In 2019 he co-founded the annual 1606 project that facilitates cross cultural connections between international artists in collaboration with PaintGuide and the University of Leiden among other local partners in The Netherlands and Mexico. "The action of dropping a series of objects on the ground causes a consequence that in itself already has a clear aesthetic composition, but what then is the artist if not a facilitator of gravity and the work of art the outcome of this simple movement. The clear difference between chance or banality and expression is simply recognition, the paradoxical simplicity that exists between work and play, between beauty and ugliness and ultimately, between life and art. Said recognition differentiates the sensible from the pragmatic and positivistic, so, sensibility explains the work of Daniel Martin. His work, unlike many of his contemporaries, focuses on ambiguous outcomes and denies a clear objective, each piece is an exploration between deformation, decay, truth and untruth. The physical objects (which are usually randomly chosen ready-mades) or what he calls matter, are the primary medium which is manipulated during the creative process, but these objects are contextualized into aesthetic reproductions of structural patterns. The ambiguity that these finished compositions represent could be explained as a place where progress is an absolute."
