After months of work, I am pleased to announce my next solo show titled “AUREA MEDIOCRITAS” which opens next Thursday, November 25th at The Don Gallery (Milano, Italy). Those of you living near Milan,will be a pleasure to see you at the opening, those who don´t, you could see pictures of the exhibition at the gallery’s website. San
The Don Gallery presents the first italian solo show of Daniel Muñoz, also known as “SAN” (Cáceres, Spain 1980).
In recent years the artist has developed a solid career in different fields, moving between painting, drawing and mural.
This exhibition is presented as a new formal analysis of his career: A series of works on paper that means an aesthetically change from his last solo exhibition (Iguapop Gallery, Barcelona 2009) and a new approach to the categories that shape his work. “A hinge between painted drawing and drawed painting.”
Ignoring the recurrent problematic of mediums, the social-political speech and mannered aesthetics of the scene that defines his generation, the artist presents “AUREA MEDIOCRITAS” as a collection of reflections on the myths rooted in the world of art and its surroundings, providing a scathing critique but open at all times.
Situations and attitudes most common and obvious in the life of an artist is for him a source of constant analysis: a battlefield where there are no fatal losses, but also glorious victories.
* Note from Wikipedia: In philosophy, especially that of Aristotle, the golden mean is the desirable middle between two extremes, one of excess and the other of deficiency. For example courage, a virtue, if taken to excess would manifest asrecklessness and if deficient as cowardice. To the Greek mentality, it was an attribute of beauty. Both ancients and moderns realized that “there is a close association in mathematics between beauty and truth”.
