Above tree line hiking I am inspired and motivated by the clear open space and the endless views. Here on the Weminuche plateau of the Continental Divide trail the hills roll, tarns and creeks are abundant and large jagged peaks are on the horizon. Transcend and enter this magical wilderness. Although a threatening sky is apparent it is a reminder of the transiency of life.
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.
