Daniel Sprick is active/lives in Colorado. Daniel Sprick is known for photo-real landscape, floral still life, and interior painting.
A still-life painter of everyday objects that speak of a throw-away
society as well as interiors that have a surrealistic quality,
Daniel is a widely exhibited Colorado artist whose style is
realism. Occasionally he will incorporate his own studio or a
landscape scene into still lifes as well as artifacts from travels to
exotic places such as New Guinea.
He credits Dutch painters Jan
Van Eyck and Jean Vermeer as among major influences as well as Baroque
and Renaissance painters, and he also took many art history courses at
the University of Northern Colorado. He chose that school because
it was not dominated by avant-garde artist teachers.
In the late
1990s, he spent a year in California to challenge himself because he
felt he was too complacent in his spacious studio in Glenwood Springs
in the Rocky Mountains. Except for short periods, he has lived in
that town since he was six years old.
