“The Allegory for Irresistible Force Confronts the Metaphor of the Immovable Object” is the title of Dan’s thesis art work. Dan describes it as, “a one hundred foot long slice of geometric landscape inhabited by a multitude of tiny adorable squirrels drawn in awe towards an object they can’t fully perceive or understand.” When it was on display, it spanned a room 100′ wide. It is constructed from wood, flocked vinyl, a rock from the beach that was trailered to LA, a nylon strap to hold the rock and 1000 hand-sculpted squirrels. Dan and many of his friends worked many long hours making and paint those squirrels. I picked one close-up of the work to include with this post. More photos are on display on Dan’s website. So what does Dan plan on doing with his 100′ long art work? He plans on cutting it up into one foot sections. Some sections will go as thank you gifts to his army of squirrel painters. The rest he plans on selling. Dan has two or three more art shows scheduled for this summer. This is good news. More good news is that he will be accompanying us on our whirlwind tour of California.
