“You must look beneath the surface of the varnish and layers of paint into the intricate creations of Daniel Edmondson. Whether it be the fluidity of a bouquet of delicate flowers transitioning on to a contrasting weather beaten board in the classic chiaroscuro style that echoes of Rembrandt or the beauty of a ballerina who seems melancholic yet, in the next minute, seems to smile much like the soft Spumato style of Leonardo’s Mona Lisa.”
A well collected artist trained in the classical style, Daniel Edmondson brings Old Master painting into the modern using contemporary themes and expressive brushwork. Edmondson’s masterful handling of paint is a combination of light and shadow with nuances of broken color. In painting portrait and figure, still life, and landscape; there is a keen sense of richness of color, balance and movement in his work. His dramatic use of light captivates your eye as you wander through the painting.
Daniel lives in Fort Collins, Colorado with his family. Daniel has studied at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Palette and Chisel in Chicago, the Loveland Academy of Fine Art , the Fechin Institute in Taos, New Mexico, the Scottsdale Artists’ School in Scottsdale, Arizona, and The Arts Students League in Denver, Colorado.
