broken_tooth1Daniel Silver is a part of the new generation of artists who cannibalize the classics with deeply psychological insights. The ungainly often exposed structural elements and unorthodox forms found in contemporaries such as Huma Bhabha, Thomas Houseago, and Matthew Monahan et al., have reinvigorated the sculptural genre despite the encroachment of new media’s virtual panopticon.

Where his production is concerned “Letting Go” physically and mentally pushes the artist into new terrain. A synthesis of forms with remote traces of classical antiquity, primitive, and high modernist influences (Late Rodin, Gaudier Brezska, Henry Moore) contain the pantheistic origins of sculpture within a very contemporary discourse.
