Historical Context:
Through his college years, local Michigan artist Daniel Roache painted and experiment with medias, such as silk screen printing. His works mainly concentrated on landscape and figurative abstractions. At this time, he also worked as a skilled machinist in the tool and die industry as a sign painter and in various construction trades. It was the experiences working in these various construction trades that eventually let to his development as a metal sculptor. On his work he states, “Spare minimal shapes are valid expressions in sculpture, but once taken in they can become as ignored and “invisible” as the furniture we live with. I try to provide complexity in artwork that encourages the viewer return and discover more levels in the composition or narrative content."
