Born in Argentina, musician and photo artist Dan Tarradellas crafts organic, encaustic wax photography pieces depicting landscapes and rural themes inspired by the works of Michael Kenna, Andrew Wyeth, George Sotter, William Turner, and Roger Dean. In a world of fleeting, disposable digital snapshots, painterly scenes are brought to life as photo art by the luminescence of natural wax, brush strokes, and ironed textures.
Primarily self-taught and fascinated by the space that lies somewhere between photography and painting, Dan's work embrace both the conceptual and the material. Dan’s decidedly modern approach to digital photo manipulation, juxtaposed with classical sensibilities and the physical enhancement of the encaustic wax medium, renders the works a timeless and tangible significance.
