León, Spain. 1968
Daniel Verbis has always conceived his work as a process of research on the material and formal procedures of painting in first stay, and on the problems of language in second term. It is not surprising in this respect his interest in artists such as Rene Magritte or Sol Lewitt, whose work constitutes a true treatise on the problems of representation and the relationship between the sign and the subject.
In an interesting game of back and forth between the pictorial work and the intervention in the exhibition space, Verbis has intensified the exploration of the new behaviors of painting: from its confection with extra-pictorial materials such as plasticine, buttons or yarns, methacrylate, aluminum foil, oil, shadow or graphics, to the questioning of the support itself.
Daniel Verbis invites us to doubt what we see, to not put limits to the spaces and much less, to the forms of art. His painting, epidermal and emotional, takes us on a visually seductive artistic journey at times, tense at others, ironic and shocking. Stimulating sensory representations, developed from the artist’s research on creative processes and materials.
He has had numerous solo exhibitions, and his works are present in the most important museums and public collections, such as MNCARS- Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, Folkwang Museum (Essen, Germany) or Pérez Art Museum (Miami, USA), among others.
