Daniel Silver Studio, 2020
We are delighted to present an online viewing room featuring new sculptures by Daniel Silver. Silver’s work explores and manipulates the human form, sometimes with brutality, at other times with the utmost sensitivity. An analyst, an archaeologist and an artist, he moves constantly between styles, examining the physical and emotional impact of the body and its representation.
You is part of a new series of ceramic heads made by the artist in his studio for most of the time under the period of Covid-19 lockdown. Silver modelled the pieces in clay, using shop mannequins’ faces as a starting point and then letting each work develop its own characteristic and personality. Once kiln-fired each head is then treated with coloured inks and acrylic lending them a painterly air. The artist regards the works as individuals from a rather dream-like family, familiar yet slightly surreal.
