Danny Quirk: The Requited
Arts Night Out opening reception on Friday, January 13, 5-7 pm.
The art of Danny Quirk takes root in classical elements but blooms surreal fruit. With a close eye for detail, dexterity with watercolors, and different ways of seeing, he is able to create cutting edge work, rich in emotion, and capped with a concept that surpasses the initial image.
According to Quirk, The Requited was "vicariously conceived. It is based on past emotions that lead into imagined aspirations. The series as a whole, artless in its conception, and artful in its execution, was meant to make those callow emotions tangible, and hopefully connect to a greater audience.
"The exhibition was made to be viewed as one large piece or experience. Like a progressive album, each piece leads into the one following it, progressively building to a symphony of sentiment, and a chorus of culmination in the end."
Danny Quirk is a recent graduate of Pratt Institute, looking to get into medical illustration. Since graduation, he has had numerous showings across the continental US, been featured in many art and fan blogs, and thanks to the recent feature on Behance, and publication in Juxtapoz Magazine, his work has been received on an international level.
