Alfred Daniels

1924-2015


....a singleness of vision as well as a poetic concern for the ordinaryis something Breugelian in the interest in ordinary people doing ordinary things, neither romanticized nor dramatizedsort of shorthand in creating the flat silhouette of a figure which, despite its puppet-like appearance, has a real humanity of its own..Daniels has been fashioned by his working-class background and his paintings explore and recreate a world he understands.
