Daniel Schubert

Daniël Schubert (1984, DE), lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Observation is always at the base of Schubert’s work. This goes as much for the artist as for the way his paintings challenge the spectator’s sensory perception. Schubert restructures close observations into well-balanced, abstract compositions that seem almost meditative by nature. Their concentrated serenity, expressed through shape, colour, and innovative use of technique make Schubert’s paintings intriguing and cause the need for an up-close encounter with the canvas.

As Schubert’s working method is one of peace and tranquility, using traditional materials such as rabbit glue and homemade egg tempera, the reception of his works also depends on concentration and gains power through duration. The duet between artist and spectator can therefore be a slow and intensive process, but allows both parties to find new forms of expression in painting and gives fleeting impressions from everyday life a deeper and lasting meaning.
