Daniel Anselmi ‘s paintings are made of paint and paper. Anselmi is a master of formal abstraction through his dialogue with both painting and collage. Found, discarded paper such as charts, ledgers, and blueprints, each valued for their tactility, remain subtly evident in his paintings. Fragments of paper are cut, painted and layered offering countless opportunities to express color, line, and form. Through this process, the composition’s graphic and geometric shapes are softened; the worn and painted elements evoke time, slowly built with the implication and the dignity of some enigmatic past.
