Daniel Brush

Edited by Amy Wilkins. Introduction by Dr. Oliver Sacks. Text by David Revere McFadden, Brett Littman, Daniel Brush, Olivia Brush, Saskia Hamilton, Paul Keegan.

Featured image, "Locations" (2011), is reproduced from <I>Daniel Brush</I>.The work of Daniel Brush (born 1947) does not fit neatly into the categories commonly used to describe contemporary art or craft. While he uses traditional art media such as pen and ink and paper or canvas, he also uses materials such as blocks of billet steel, pure aluminum, pure gold and precious gems; he also makes exquisite jewelry. These mysterious artworks--drawings, paintings, small sculptures, jewelry and other objects hard to classify--reveal, upon close inspection, details that are astonishing in their precision and technical facility. Most of Brush's work is in private collections around the world, and it is rarely seen in public. Containing more than 450 photographs (all of which represent the artworks at their actual size), this book shows much of the artist's work of the last decade and affords a rare opportunity to contemplate these objects.

FROM THE BOOK
The enigmatic work of the artist Daniel Brush may be best described in his own words as "the clarity of confusion." Brush, who has been steadily working for almost 40 years, has produced paintings, drawings and sculptures that are at once profoundly spare and at the same time are some of the most exquisitely crafted, information dense and emotionally complex works that you will ever experience. Irreconcilable ideas in general feed his aesthetics making his art open ended and probing. These are works that engender more questions than answers.
So where does "clarity" come into play in Brush's work? I would argue that the drawn, engraved and fabricated line is the formal component that gives clarity to his diverse oeuvre. The compositional element of the line links the paintings, drawings, sculptures, Loose Threads and his latest geometric "light" sculptures made with steel and diamonds.
- Brett Littman, excerpted from the essay Daniel Brush: Drawing a Line, reproduced from Daniel Brush.

Daniel Brush Featured in The New York Times

Daniel Brush Featured in The New York Times

In this Sunday's New York Times, Ted Loos profiles artist and alchemist Daniel Brush, whose work will be on view at the Museum of Arts and Design from October 16 through February 17. Loos writes, "François Curiel, president of Christie’s Asia and a jewelry expert at that auction house, is a longtime admirer of Mr. Brush. 'In terms of technical proficiency, on a scale of 10 he’s an 11,' Mr. Curiel said. 'The closest thing I can think of to a Brush piece, though his work is not in that style, is a Fabergé egg.'"
