Phill is drawn to the interplay of an optimistic color palette against a placid background which creates surreal, vibrant botanical environments. Phill’s work achieves spontaneity while playing with the boundaries of abstraction and representation. Extended drips of paint serve to imply stems while gestural paint-loaded brushstrokes suggest petals and blossoms.

Daniel Phill received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at San Francisco Art Institute and continued on to earn a Masters of Fine Art at Stanford University. Phill has shown in many solo exhibitions and is very well collected.

My interest in depicting imagery through the lens of abstraction informs my process.” Through pouring, dripping, smearing, and scraping paint on the canvas, Daniel Phill creates abstract, suggestive paintings. The ambiguity created by the composing and dissolving of form creates a tension between abstraction, figuration, and the illusion of space.
