Dacia Gallery proudly presents "Daniel Maidman: Recent Drawings," a solo exhibition and sale. These drawings represent highlights of the past year of Daniel Maidman's long-term practice of frequent life drawing. Through drawing from the live model, Maidman seeks himself, as a person and an artist. He refines his eye and hand, questions his assumptions about art and the visual, and intuits where his projects, figurative or not, want to go next. This process of exploration is always a pleasure, and his goal has been to communicate that pleasure in drawings that celebrate the vitality, variety, and beauty of the human form.

ARTIST BIO
Daniel Maidman is a painter whose imagery occupies a spectrum from high rendering to almost total abstraction. His art has been shown in group and solo shows in Manhattan, and in juried exhibitions nationwide. It was selected by the Saatchi Gallery to be displayed at Gallery Mess in London, and has been exhibited at the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science and Art. His art and writing on art have been featured in ARTnews, Juxtapoz, Hyperallergic, American Art Collector, International Artist, Poets/Artists, MAKE, Manifest, and The Artist’s Magazine. He blogs for The Huffington Post. His paintings range from the figure and portraiture, to still lives and landscapes, to investigations of machinery, architecture, and microflaura. He has produced paintings in collaboration with best-selling novelist China Miéville, award-winning poet Kathleen Rooney, legendary actor Martin Donovan, and noted installation artist Erika Johnson. His work is included in the permanent collection of the New Britain Museum of American Art, as well as numerous private collections, among them those of New York Magazine senior art critic Jerry Saltz, Chicago collector Howard Tullman, Disney senior vice president Jackson George, and Gemini-winning screenwriter Jeremy Boxen. He is represented by Dacia Gallery in New York. He lives and paints in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
