Over the course of 30 years working in near seclusion from the mainstream, Daniel Brush has created an unparalleled body of work in painting, sculpture and jewelry. His large-scale canvases and drawings, inspired by the expressive, disciplined gestures of Noh theater and the drama of Modernist painting, integrate Brush's study of Asian philosophy and twentieth-century art. His three-dimensional works, of mesmerizing intricacy, include delicate gold domes, jewel-encrusted objects of fantasy and gold-and-steel sculptures only a few inches high. Brush's rigorous aesthetic is marked by intellectual force, technical mastery and the science of materials: the Chicago Tribune called his work as "subtly moving" as Agnes Martin's. The idiosyncratic, contemplative work gathered in these three volumes records a journey of evolving mastery, and embodies a deeply expressive voice in American art. Brush has had seven solo museum exhibitions, including a retrospective at the Smithsonian and a recent exhibition at the Lannan Foundation.
