'Dabs 4' is an excellent example of the experimental paintings of Daniel Klewer. As Klewer works on his other paintings, such as from his 'Linear Tactility' series and floral works, he uses significant amounts of paint – which would likewise result in a significant amount of waste. Not wanting to dispose of unused materials, Klewer started to make his Dabs paintings. These works include large numbers of thickly-textured and highly colorful spots of paint against a white background and result in investigations into the visual and psychological resonance of color relationships and texture. Color relationships, texture, and a brushless paint application dominate the paintings’ surface, while also questioning the figure-ground relationship: The sculptural paint feels as if it is reaching off the canvas towards the viewer. At the same time, the vibrant colors draw the viewer back to the paintings’ surface.

Artist Bio: Daniel was born and raised in Milwaukee and majored in art at UWGB. He also earned a Master of Arts in visual studies degree from Cardinal Stritch University. He is now based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Klewer is best known for his painting process, which over the years has evolved into him nearly doing away with the brush and implementing a non-traditional paint application. Daniel’s love of oil and acrylic paint is evident in his treatment of his abstract paint surfaces. He enjoys a meditative, sequential process where the spontaneity of the material is allowed to influence the direction of the work. His oeuvre thus sits between the Hard-Edge abstraction of such artists as Agnes Martin, Ellsworth Kelly and Martin and Carmen Herrera, and the gestural and spontaneous techniques of the Abstract Expressionists.
