Daniel Corey
“The Point At Pemaquid”

Daniel Corey is a traditional painter rooted in the aesthetic values of the Ashcan school and the impressionists of the Cape Cod School of Art. Mostly inspired by light quality, color harmony and abstract shapes, his paintings are created from direct observation. He really enjoys the challenge of painting nontraditional views and subjects, finding the beauty in them, along with the views that make Maine, Maine.

Daniel has been named the 2009 Monhegan Island artist in residence by the Monhegan Artists’ Residency Corporation(MARC).

“What I hope to accomplish during my residency on Monhegan is most simply stated as growth. I believe the time and surroundings provided through this residency will really allow me to focus on what makes my paintings mine and what makes me, me.

Being familiar with the rich art history of the Island and the part some of my personal painting heroes have had in it, would make this residency very special to me. I find this a priceless opportunity to experience the scenes they painted and walk in their footsteps, while having the time to paint my own personal view of the Island and hopefully leaving a few footprints of my own. “
