Daniel Mullen Artist Bio:
Scottish Painter(1985) working in Amsterdam STATEMENT I paint images of abstract architectural volumes and spaces in which the scale is left to the imagination of the viewer. My tools include paint, paper tape, and pencil, while drawing aesthetic inspiration primarily from the Neoplaticism and Constructivism movements. Additionally, Im interested in a correlation to computer generated images through the use of perspective, repetition, fractals and transparency. "What is reality?" is a question that repeatedly surfaces for me. In contemporary society the line between our perception of reality and illusion has become increasingly blurred. In my work this is highlighted through the friction between the stability of structure and the fragility of weightlessness and transparency. I aim to create the illusion to be seen exactly as an illusion, like the shadows on the wall in the analogy of Plato's cave. As a child, I had an overwhelming relationship to structural space, through my imagination I could project onto and alter it as I desired. As an adult, no longer having that direct relationship to space, the canvas-picture plane becomes the conduit and activator to explore that prior capacity. I see my work not as paintings but as fleeting manifestations of curiosity. I am creating a universe wherein I'm the architect at play, allowing myself the freedom to explore and experiment as I wish.
