Lives & works in Kingston, WA
Daniel Voelker's formal education includes the University of Washington and the Atelier Program at Gage Academy of Art, but the real evolution has happened over 20+ years in the studio. His style is edgy, bold and dynamic. He creates captivating collages using his own source material of automatic charcoal and marker drawings, mono prints, and paint. Each work contains many many layers, and often has hidden faces and figures. If you ask Daniel, he'll say he was born an artist and even through stints in the corporate world and while raising his family, he's always been compelled to create art.
I’m interested in manipulating the relationship of tone, line and shape in my work. I create depth and form new connections through the collage process, which oscillates between quick improvisational moves and carefully planned revisions. I’m inspired by graffiti, urban decay, and music. I experiment with my source material and media to push the edges in the creation of my work. I feel like my job is to pull something out of nothing and convey it to the world.
