Daniel is an artist who likes to experience the landscape he paints. Cowwarr’s proximity to the high country the generosity of Parks Vic. Rangers Mike Dower and Wayne McCallum and his willingness to get out into the mountains in all weathers has resulted in a collection of paintings that he will use as preparative works for an exhibition in the Sidney Nolan Trust on the Welsh border later this year.
The exhibition will include works from both his Snowdonia National Park residency and his CAN Inc. residency. His work will tour to Australia in 2014 and be on exhibition at the Gippsland Art Gallery.
