Rooted on the earth the sun encompasses all. I am influenced in this painting by the symbolic iconography of the celtic ruin for Mountain and the Hebraic characters of Yod-Hei-Vav_Hei. Using these forms as angular and structural elements I abstracted the painting into what I found as grounding to earth and open to the heavens.
Making art for Daniel Kanow is of key importance in finding clarity and balance. He loves to paint and draw expressively with intent of raw emotion. The application of paint and use of color are tantamount for Daniel to represent the present moment. Daniel’s interest lies in the deep places of emotion that tell personal and universal narratives of fear, pain, love and beauty. His art acts as a conduit or bridge to fill emotional voids. Daniel’s process is dynamic and he invites the viewer to immerse themselves into their own stories so that the artwork may create a personal resonance. Daniel Kanow lives in Telluride, Colorado with his family. Art, family, and wilderness are his anchors for inspiration and motivation.
