Dan Quintana - Known for such muted tones, reoccurring symbolism, and unearthly figurative renderings, Quintana’s work often channels the great Dutch and Flemish masters. Many of his paintings depict a chaotic scene of movement and wonder, circulating around a main manifestation within an Art Deco landscape. Several works in Quintana’s new series feature a cadaverous figure accompanied by a ghost-like horse. This personification of death is brought to life in an alluring haze of smoky pigment by a razor-thin paintbrush. The extensive time spent on each figure is apparent, as their staggering precision grips one’s attention in an instant.
