The Quiet After Word
Daniel Domig's monograph “The Quiet After Word” provides an extensive look at his work, with the main focus being on his works of the last five years.
Daniel Domig’s painting has changed over the recent years. “The physically movable set pieces, which were testimony to his engagement with his photographic sources in his previous works, have gone” as the author Velten Wagner explained. This has allowed for the works to gain an intensity and denseness seldom found in contemporary art contexts. According to Wagner, Domig deliberately paints in a way that counters the cursory glance of fast-paced image consumption as shaped by digital media. In doing so, the artist does not start with pre-formulated ideas, but instead develops his works from the internal dynamics of painting in its materiality and as a process. Layered transparent colors create figurative color spaces. “Figuration and color interact, permeate each other and infuse each other to form a physicality in these paintings that seems enigmatic and sensual,” Wagner wrote.
Daniel Domig was born in Vancouver in Canada in 1983. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna from 2001 until 2006 and now lives and works in Vienna. His monograph “The Quiet After Word” provides an extensive look at his work, with the main focus being on his works of the last five years.
