BMoCA will be visiting with artist Daniel M. Granitto. He creates paintings based on source images from his own personal photo archive; Granitto’s paintings are intrinsically and necessarily rooted in real moments of lived experience.
Granitto writes “Having a direct and personal relationship with the subject is essential for me, which is why I work exclusively from my own photos. However, much of the contextual information that makes any moment so striking is often lost when translated to photograph. For this reason, when painting from these printed photographs, I intentionally set up certain habits and interventions that force me to engage with my memory and imagination instead of relying totally on the photo for visual information.”
Daniel M. Granitto returned to his hometown of Lakewood, Colorado in 2016 after living and working in Chicago, Illinois for six years where he received his BFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Granitto’s works have been exhibited in galleries and museums spanning the western United States. Daniel currently works out of his home studio in Lakewood where he lives with his wife and two kids.
