Come Dance with Me by Jerry Daniel

Jerry Daniel
Dances with Steel

For the past twenty-five years I have been exploring the idea of reducing the human figure to basic calligraphic brush strokes in space to communicate joy, exuberance, movement and rhythm in space. Simplicity is the first form in nature and the last in art. The simplicity of a calligraphic brushstroke executed three-dimensionally in space, is for me, the Haiku poetry of sculpture. Rather than the space compressing figures of Giacometti, I wanted my forms to expand space and work in visual harmony with both nature and architecture. My favorite description of my art is a quote I’ve borrowed from Henri Matisse:

“I’ve always tried to hide my efforts and wished my works to have the light joyousness of springtime which never let anyone suspect the labor it has cost me
