In his works, Daniel Boccato uses the shapes of commonplace objects to appeal to the human inclination to perceive and recognize facial features in random objects, patterns and images. Going back and forth from abstraction to figuration, his works engage the viewers in a constant play, stimulating their imagination and emotions through colors, shapes and humorous titles.

About Daniel Boccato
Born in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, and educated at the Cooper Union in New York, the sculptor Daniel Boccato suggests through his work a sensibility that is simultaneously minimalist and Dadaist. His sculptures consist of industrial materials—concrete or medium-density fiberboard or polyester resin—simply and compellingly arranged. Boccato has often combined these with natural and found elements, which have ranged from a lemon, an aluminum window frame, and a plastic raincoat to a metal folding chair, apples, and a bathroom soap dish.
