Daniel Corey

by Sarah Judson March 27, 2012

Maine artist Daniel Corey is a traditional painter rooted in the aesthetic values of the Ashcan School and the impressionists of the Cape Cod School of Art. Inspired by light quality, color harmony and abstract shapes, his paintings are created from direct observation. He enjoys the challenge of painting non traditional views and subjects, and the views that make Maine, Maine. He has a fun blog that includes not only recent paintings and events, but also interesting quotes, some from famous painters and some of his own. Here are some quotes of his own: "I really like it when brushstrokes seem to be cruising at about 90mph and missed their exit." "Maybe, keeping it abstract is really keeping it real..?" "...it is no easy task being influenced by Russian impressionists and the likes of Fairfield Porter. They are always arm wrestling in my head."
