ALIC DANIEL: SCRAWL STRUCTURED
The Red Arrow Gallery / 919 Gallatin Ave. #4 August 13, 2016 - September 4, 2016
Alic Daniel (b.1992) opens Scrawl Structured, his second solo exhibition with The Red Arrow Gallery at 6PM on Saturday August 13th, 2016 in conjunction with the Eastside Art Stumble.
Alic Daniel is taking the next step. With just over a year since his rise in the Nashville Art Scene that included his first solo exhibition, multiple site specific installations, work featured at OZ Arts and clients taking him around the country for original works and murals in their homes and workspaces, Daniel is branching out from traditional ink and canvas materials and taking his gestural mark-making to a new realm by introducing sculpture and neon fabrication.
Scribble is the phrase that Alic Daniel has given to his calligraphic lines that he also references as meditations of form and composition. Within Scrawl Structured the viewer finds an exhibition nearly void of traditional paintings and instead filled with sculputres made from metal, wood, enamel, plexiglass and neon. The new mediums still present Daniel’s distinct line structure and familiar voice with the simplicity of the lines going from easily accessible structures to fabricated works that reflect the complexity of the meditation of the compositional form. This collection of work explores Alic’s repeating of rules of composition and geometry.
Alic Daniel holds a BFA from Belmont University and has participated in multiple exhibitions. He works on public and private walls, textiles, sculptures, and digital media while continuing to showcase his trademark style. He was born in Dayton, Ohio and since 2011 has lived and worked in Nashville, Tennessee where he is represented by The Red Arrow Gallery.
