Rendering the Fundamentals, 80x110cm, Oil on canvas

Using paint, paper tape, pencil and blank canvas, artist Daniel Mullen creates images that examines with space and its representation through movement, fragmentation and the use of perspective. The friction created between the image and the painting, between painted and non-painted surfaces, and activation and deactivation of planes is what gives these creations meaning. Through it, Mullen conveys the “subtle illusion of space, as a question of perception.”

My recent works are not a direct representation of existing architecture. The point of departure comes from the deconstruction of thoughts and memories. Meaning is then derived from a common understanding. At the same time that understanding raises new questions of association, searching for a disquieting intimacy.
