Over the course of thirty years, working in virtual seclusion from the mainstream, Daniel Brush has created an unparalleled body of work. His career includes international painting exhibitions, a fifteen-year period of seclusion and study, and an intense immersion into the mysteries of gold. His large-scale canvases and drawings- inspired by the expressive, disciplined gestures of the Noh theatre- integrate the artist's profound understanding of Asian thought with the removed drama in modernist painting. Brush's three-dimensional works- products of solitary thought, study and experimentation- are included in many public, private and royal collections. This book is a sampling of his works.
