DUNCAN MCDANIEL: ROOTED
The Red Arrow Gallery / 919 Gallatin Ave. April 3 - 25th
Red Arrow Gallery is proud to present, ROOTED, a solo exhibition of new paintings from local Nashville artist, Duncan McDaniel. The reception for ROOTED opens on April 3rd, 2021 and the exhibition continues through April 25th, 2021.
Nearly three years to the day since his first solo show, McDaniel returns to Red Arrow with a stunning body of work. He is an interdisciplinary artist who uses elements of light, color and sculptural design to form his practice. “Rooted” explores themes related to life at home during a pandemic. The rhythmic nature of domestic life is presented through his abstract paintings with arrays of lines, shape and color giving way to spontaneous forms and depth within each piece. For Duncan these works are a mirror image dematerialized into abstract lines. Each painting gives the viewer a glimpse into the artist's life through its dynamic chromatic relationships and curvilinear patterns that exist within the playful narrative recognizable in Duncan’s work.
