Dan Geesin

20160316-geesin portraitGeesin’s objects embody a worn primitive power. Often hung in constellations, they generate figurative interactions that play with their hierarchy.

Suspended from ropes, hooks or leaning against walls there is always a warped monolithic reference; standing a skew or seemingly off balance. His site-specific works also embody this same unconventional balance, often made with sticks tied together, suggesting the trajectory of his objects and also their absence.

Geesin’s works are always titled, contributing to his subjective and social narrative. In spite of his often primitive and dysfunctional forms, his work is easily associated with modern morphology and the playful cartoonesque quality of the media.

Geesin credits his early memories of English coppice woodlands and his father’s workshop for his interest in wood and the processes that he undertakes.

Though abstract, the works possess an anthropomorphic feel, and each group has its own distinct discourse.

His work has been shown in numerous prestigious private and public collections, including Tate Modern, The Penrose Collection, Utrecht Central Museum, Tylers Museum and Lincoln Center New York.
