William Daniels

William Daniels’s textile works primarily use traditional quilt blocking and paper piecing techniques, though they sometimes feature the unconventional. “I derive inspiration from urban art practice that confronts contemporary issues and am always experimenting to integrate modern archetypes with historical, societal, or spiritual topics,” he says. “While some of the concepts in my work are quite unambiguous and literal, others are abstract references to the anthropological experience, individuality, or contain esoteric philosophies and historical references from the coded glyphs of ancient cultures.”
