Historical Context:
"My painted metal sculptures are an outgrowth of the hard-edged compositional style I developed over many years of painting and printmaking combined with my training as a machinist. I try to create art complex enough that it can be visited again and again, always revealing something new. In designing my work, I concern myself with the shape of the voids between the pieces as much as with the surfaces that I paint. I want all of a composition to hold the viewer's interest, whether in a pure abstraction or in those works that include realistic objects that have their own beautiful geometry more easily seen when those objects are taken out of context. I strive to give the viewer images with a bit of mystery, that cannot be taken in without conscious examination." -Daniel Roache
