About

Daniel Zeller is based in New York and has exhibited extensively in the United States. Working mainly in ink, pen, and pencil, Zeller’s sketch-sized drawings are stunningly complex and develop from an interest in science, the natural world, anatomy, the human body, technology, the microscopic and visions of the world as seen from satellites. ‘Horror vacui’ in its visual style, Zeller’s drawings are in fact executed in a methodical manner that recalls works of Sol LeWitt and Bridget Riley. Equally intricate and labour intensive, Zeller’s drawing continues an interest in drawing as a speculative tool that reveals the complexity in life. His drawings posit a futuristic vision, but also expose an artistic process that dutifully works across the page in real terms. The imagery, anatomical and topographical in appearance, clearly references a history of drawing, and from the first mark on the page, is in search of a new discovery.
