Pursuing a printed-paper aesthetic, Daniel Vukovljak’s work follows several lines of inquiry seeking a playful conversion of rational or irrational thought into form. The inquiries, performed like mini experiments, generally take the shape of “What happens when I take A and perform B…” and “What if I combine it with C?”
As Rudolf Arnheim says in Visual Thinking, to make an object/idea visible is to know its essential traits. Daniel intuits that the act of making can also flow knowledge back into the object or idea being depicted.
The resultant works or “inquiries” act as a visual imagery smorgasbord to stir the imagination.
