> DESCRIPTION

Dan Massad's extraordinary works in pastel are filled with layers of meaning. In each of these works, Massad has created a small world built of objects that at first glance appear to be common still life items. On closer examination one realizes the compositions and elements of the pieces carry references to such ideas as the Golden Ratio, the geometric proportion behind all aesthetically pleasing art. Each piece is a beautifully created still life on a dark near-black atmospheric background of layers and layers of pastel on which Massad works until the moment only he knows the work is complete.
