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.

I aim to create images that are organic and evolving, playing between the boundaries of abstraction and representation. I am interested in a gestural and painterly wet-into-wet technique where images blend and melt into each other. It inspires me that each viewer can take something quite different from the same painting.
