about his work

Daniel Dove's paintings combine highly controlled surfaces with random chance drips and mark-making.  Among many influences, his work references 19th century painting, communicating the banality of contemporary urban landscapes through perspective and light.

the top ten

1.    Other artists, alive and dead.  A professor of mine once said “you know it’s good if you feel threatened”. I’m
       not sure if he’s right, but I think about it often.
2.    Talking about art with passionate friends and students.
3.    Film, even if I spend about $40 per Netflix rental.
4.    Music recommended by students with stylish hair.
5.    Computer-generated imagery and forms.
6.    NPR
7.    Driving around with the “art eyes” on.
8.    Computer games (a fading interest).  Sometimes I play Grand Theft Auto just to watch the sunset.
9.    Shamefully, serious reading comes in at #9, but it hopes to make the final four by season’s end.
10.   More shamefully, shopping on Ebay for sneakers that I basically already own.
