Personal Space: Paintings by Daniel Kornrumph
September 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us in the Groundwork! Gallery to celebrate a new show of paintings by local artist Daniel Kornrumph.
Documenting a time where paths cross, Daniel Kornrumpf’s paintings are biased, imperfect, visual transmissions painted from observation of the people that make up his personal story. Learning through the process of discovery that occurs in painting, Daniels’ work focuses on elements that emotionally sharpen the idea of solitude, need, and desire. The individuals in Daniel’s paintings act as vehicles for connection; a connection to shared values, to the spaces we inhabit, and as a way to understand his own sense of existence.
Daniel Kornrumpf grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. He earned his BFA from Kutztown University where he majored in painting. He attended graduate school, earning his MFA at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts focusing on painting and textiles. Daniel then moved to Cambridge, MA to teach design courses at Newbury College where he continued to painting and make embroideries in his Somerville studio. Daniel’s work has been published in New American Paintings, Fiber Art Now, and the Huffington Post to name a few. He has exhibited his work locally including the DeCordova Museum and Simmons College, as well as nationally at the Scope Miami Art Fair and Schmidt Dean gallery in Philadelphia. His work is currently represented by Blank Space Gallery in New York. Daniel presently lives in Berkley, Massachusetts teaching Art Foundation and Design courses at Mount Ida College and Emmanuel College. He will be moving into a new studio in the Co-Creative Space in Downtown New Bedford this Fall.
