Gallery

In November, 2003, Daniel had his first solo show at The Canvas Gallery in San Francisco. The gallery had this to say about Daniel's work:

Daniel Price's paintings and portraits combine vibrant color, dramatic composition, and energetic brushwork to create a sense of emotional intensity. Drawing inspiration from the culture of his hometown of New Orleans, Daniel's work is filled with musicality and passion. Having come of age in a place where life is seen as a continual celebration, Daniel celebrates the everyday in his imagery of his studio, streets scenes and his portraits of people and animals. With a firm understanding of traditional painting, Daniel uses his skills to create images that pay homage to painters of the past yet still feel very contemporary. In his portraiture, Daniel is not concerned so much with creating a likeness as with capturing the dynamic between the artist and the sitter. When the sitter is a dog - the resulting paintings are strange mix of drama and humor.

In his series of five paintings depicting Mardi Gras Indians, Daniel captures the vibrancy and drama of the costumes and people at the heart of a unique New Orleans tradition. Mardi Gras Indians are a society of social organizations comprised, in large part, of the African-Americans of New Orleans' inner cities. They have paraded for over a century in groups formed as imaginary Indian tribes and named according to the streets of their neighborhood. The Mardi Gras Indians modeled themselves after Native Americans to pay them respect for their assistance in escaping the tyranny of slavery. It is now a tradition and practice for the Mardi Gras Indians to compare their tribal song, dance and dress with other tribes as they meet on Mardi Gras day. Each Indian has invested thousands of hours and dollars in the creation of his suit, and on Mardi Gras morning, as well as St. Josephs day, the Indian tribes meet to parade. Daniel's brushwork and rich palette reflect the energy of the experience.
