Dan Gratz

Hometown Berkeley, CA
Lives and Works Brooklyn, NY
Education
MFA Painting, University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, 2013

Loosely based on photographic studies of landscapes, cloud formations and other phenomena, Dan Gratz's paintings hover between abstraction and representation. Marks employed in his paintings refer to the photographic effects of the source image with an immediacy and joy lent by a painterly sensibility. Gratz's paintings are meditative reflections of fleeting experiences, subtle pictorial commentaries on the nature of perception and existence.   


Dan Gratz has had solo exhibitions at Slag gallery in New York, Figure One Gallery, Champaign, IL and Syringe Gallery, Kansas City, MO.  Gratz has participated in several group exhibitions including David Zwirner Gallery, NY, Rema Hort Mann Foundation, NY, Temporary Storage, Brooklyn, NY, Peanut Gallery, Chicago IL, and Co-Prosperity Sphere, Chicago, IL.
