While the Denver Art Museum is taking a break from the blockbuster treadmill this summer, it’s not going to sleep. Rather, the season will be taken up by several weighty smaller exhibits, including Daniel Sprick’s Fictions: Recent Works, a tribute to a Colorado-based repre-sentational favorite, whose crystal-clear, super-realistic paintings have the double effect of both calming and exciting viewers at the same time. More than forty works will be open to contemplation in the Hamilton Building’s second-floor Gates Family Gallery beginning today.
“Upon first glance, viewers might think Daniel’s works are photographs because of their stunningly realistic elements,” exhibit curator Timothy J. Standring says of the show. “However, the longer we look at one of his paintings, the more we become aware that they are anything but a part of our world. We encounter Sprick’s paintings not so much as statements, but more as experiences, whereby we engage deeply with his creativity.”
Pay homage to local talent and see Fictions at the DAM, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway, through November 2; admission is included in the regular museum fee of $3 to $13. Go to denverartmuseum.org for details.
