Daniel McCoy : Lucid Landscapes for the Southwestern Dreamer

August 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Daniel McCoy’s latest work will be on display at Hecho Gallery in August, and will feature oil paintings of locations in New Mexico alongside illustrations and landscapes in India ink and transparent dyes. The latter, McCoy says, are swifter creations, but require more focus and precision. “I have only one chance to make the brushstrokes correct,” he says. He creates oil paintings by choosing and mixing colors, building and blending the backgrounds, and choosing a place he wants to depict. “I take photos, draw the location and usually hike the area with my family to connect a memory to each painting,” McCoy says. His work has been described as abstract expressionism, Low-Rez, Lowbrow, and Pop Surrealism—but McCoy says he’s thankful that none of those characterizations have stuck with him. “I am attempting to create something new,” he says. “I am attempting to show my fondness for New Mexico and its school of art. It is a lifelong dedication that I have to the painting—hopefully, my art will outlast any labels.”
