Dan Torop

Using a somewhat philosophical basis for his work, Dan Torop sees photographs as artifacts of a performance that will be interesting and meaningful. He views the photograph as a valuable document of the performance of actions leading up to the photograph. Thus, a photograph is assumed to be a valuable object. By using the subject matter of birds and landscapes, Torop’s photographs revolve around nostalgia for times when an absence of purity is most strongly felt. There is an attempt at artistic sincerity that is one step away from utter corniness. The photographs aim to talk about a life-experience with seriousness but are not afraid of becoming seen as pop sugar coating.

Dan Torop’s has had solo exhibitions at Lynden Sculpture Garden in Milwaukee, Center for Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York and Derek Eller Gallery in New York. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as the Islip Art Museum, Middlebury College Museum of Art, and Fairbanks Museum.
