Daniel Mincer | Compositions in Art

Daniel Mincer (1953-1981) was a versatile artist who had a strong interest in composition. His still life paintings, created both in oils and in pastels, combine everyday and commercial objects in a way that shows their relationships in daily life and their juxtaposition in form, color, and orientation. They often exhibit his offbeat and wry sense of humor. In the last three works here, household objects are larger than life and appear almost animate.
