Daniel Schubert’s art is not loud; it has not the character of an event. Against the panache of our time, the art gains its power from calmness. The works undergo a long creational process. Sometimes they rest in the atelier for months, sometimes years and emanate accuracy and balance tot he viewer. Starting point of his images are often details from nature or from urban and medial positions in which Schubert likes to move as a viewer of his surroundings.
His images approach the daily and beleaguered surface structures smoothly and concentrated. Through the skilful usage of traditional painting techniques the images seem delicate at first sight and realistically sharp. By using classic materials that are seldom used in young painting nowadays such as egg tempera, rabbit-skin glue and pigments, Schubert is looking for new forms of expression within painting. Thereby photography, drafts, and digital images as pre-study which Schubert modifies through coincidental processes. The conversion of fugitive impressions into a materialistic layer of painting is of special interest of the artist. Fragments of a frozen lake or details of online advertisement can determine the pictorial world of the Düsseldorf artist as well as the graffiti on a house front.
