Dan L. Hess was born on Long Island, NY in 1962. He received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC and an MFA from Stony Brook University in New York. He currently lives and works in the Orlando, Florida. “I approach the large works as one would a specific site or place, even a sacred place or altar, that is being simultaneously excavated and reconstructed. Things are consumed during this process: material, time, touch and false preconceptions as existing theatrical structures are worked through. My desire for the whole of my work is that it ultimately exists, both physically and visually, as a haptic proof of previously unseen or unknown realities.”
