The remarkable painter Daniel Sprick is the subject of a new documentary Daniel Sprick: Pursuit of Truth and Beauty, which plays one show only at the Center for Contemporary Arts, 7p Wednesday October 25. Sprick and the film’s director will be in person.
“Sprick draws his own comparisons,” writes the The Denver Post, “and they span 500 years: The composition and tenor of 15th- century Netherlander painters Hieronymus Bosch and Hans Membling; the loose marks of late-Impressionist American Mary Cassatt, the 20th- century abstract expressionists, whose free style creeps into the edges of his canvases.
“It all comes down to the mastery of brush and paint. Sprick’s work — he does still lifes in addition to portraits with a bit of surrealism thrown in — is organically appealing, which makes it serious and commercial at the same time.”
