Dan Quintana's Solo Exhibit "Zero Instruments" at Varnish Fine Art Opening This Weekend -- Press Previews
Dan Quintana: Zero Instruments Opening this Saturday May 25, 6-9pmWe're very pleased to present this solo of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Dan Quintana who has never before shown at Varnish. This exhibition showcases Quintana's oil paintings and charcoal drawings, featuring bold figures set in allegorical landscapes.
Zero Instruments… these (musical) devices will serve as an allegory… Our hearts and minds are a concerto of one. In this case, zero. The essence has and will always remain. Savage.
Please call us if you'd like to reserve artwork. We are available to speak with you directly, during our regular hours Tues - Sat, 11am to 6pm PST.
Press Previews Focused and soft, with hints of the ethereal, Quintana’s newer paintings are a definitive practice in restraint and deduction. Paring away at his luscious canvases until only lines, hues, single figures remain-his new canvases feature mere shadows of a once rich and hedonistic world. -Hi Fructose Magazine, Jennifer Pappas (April, '13)
Drawing influence from Bosch, Quintana’s compositions are rife with leering gremlins and demons meshing with his Mel Ramos-esque girls into works that deserve a second look. -Arrested Motion (May 21, '13)
