About Daniel Preece

About the artwork

Daniel has always made work about the landscape, mainly the urban environment. He observes the world around him and uses drawing as a way of documenting a place and locating himself. The urban landscape provides great opportunities to explore issues of geometry and colour, the boundaries between abstraction and figuration - concerns that fascinate and compel him. ‘The best paintings for me show you something you haven’t seen before; it’s about the artist finding a new way of describing something but allowing the viewer to come to some of their own conclusions’ Dan was initially drawn to the gasometers and tower blocks that populated the area he grew up in around South-West London. ‘In hindsight, they were like urban mountains. Working from these in London gave me the opportunity to easily return to the motif, drawing and painting them directly from observation, then using the images in the studio environment to explore my internal and external responses to these structures. The Gasometers had the same formal elements I was interested in when painting mountains, an ever-changing sense of scale due to light and colour.’
