'Dabs 4' is an excellent example of the experimental paintings of Daniel Klewer. As Klewer works on his other paintings, such as from his 'Linear Tactility' series and floral works, he uses significant amounts of paint – which would likewise result in a significant amount of waste. Not wanting to dispose of unused materials, Klewer started to make his Dabs paintings. These works include large numbers of thickly-textured and highly colorful spots of paint against a white background and result in investigations into the visual and psychological resonance of color relationships and texture. Color relationships, texture, and a brushless paint application dominate the paintings’ surface, while also questioning the figure-ground relationship: The sculptural paint feels as if it is reaching off the canvas towards the viewer. At the same time, the vibrant colors draw the viewer back to the paintings’ surface. 24 x 36 x 2 inches signed in ink on reverse unframed
