Daniel McKinley Biography
I was born in Detroit, Michigan. I am currently living and working in New York City, NY.

Artist's Statement:
What do I want, and how do I go about getting it? There never seems to be an answer, unless you count " I want everything that is currently not in my possession". I want to continue to grow, to never stand still, and yet I still find myself listening to the same music that I listened to ten years ago. The fear is that 'the self' has already been defined, and that I am too stubborn to accept this. The truth is that I have reached a point of comfort in my being. I am no longer ill at ease with who I am. This fact now applies in my everyday life, except when it comes to my paintings, where I am always searching , where there is always room to evolve.The world is always filled with possibility. The work changes, the colors change, with each painting there is a sense of a new discovery, a sense of wonderment. When I look at my work from time past to time present I can see where my life has changed. It has become the proof that I can see that I have indeed changed, that there has been growth. the reassurance that my life is not at a standstill.Daniel McKinley11-25 46rd apt.1-jLong Island City, New York, 11101
