NEW WEBSITE UNDER DEVELOPMENT FOR EARLY 2019
“When I’m working I am always happiest in that moment where I am attempting to control what is happening but the process by which I am creating won’t allow it. I have to surrender to the nature of the process and let it just become. Before and after that moment there is always tension but during, it’s just the flow of the work, but then that’s probably true of every act of creation”Dan Pyne is a painter, sculptor and print maker, interested in the infinite exploration of surface and experiments in process that teeter between structure, control and self creating organic objects.
With a background in scientific illustration it is not surprising that geological and biological structures and chemical processes, feed and inform his work. They feel like an accretion of half familiar forms, haptic as much as visual, reacting, growing, evolving and decaying. An evolutionary moment caught in time.Dan lives in the west of Cornwall with his wife and daughter and works from Trewidden studios near Penzance surrounded by the beautiful gardens of Trewidden house.
