Dan Beck, 1955 | The Dreamers | VideoArt

For American painter Dan Beck🎨, painting is "a balancing act between opposite ideas - direct observation and instinct, control and spontaneity, even between the literal and the symbolic.
It seems to me that although a painter is deeply involved with his own private investigation, his real aim is to communicate something that only the person looking at the painting really understands".
