Daniel Sprick’s Fictions

This book, the first devoted entirely to Daniel Sprick’s work, accompanies a solo exhibi.tion of recent work at the Denver Art Museum. In addition to full-page plates of nearly fifty paintings, mostly portraits, the publication features an essay by Timothy J. Standring that describes Sprick’s painting process in detail.

“Because he works in the vernacular of realism, viewers look for verisimilitude in Daniel Sprick’s work, as if his paintings were a mirror of reality. The more we dwell on his paintings, however, the more we become aware that they are anything but a part of our world, and are, instead, poetic renditions of his own making.”

Daniel Sprick is an artist residing in Denver, Colorado and Timothy J. Standring is the Gates Foundation Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Denver Art Museum.
