Daniel Boccato, ‘parrotpainting’, 2017, The Kitchen

Courtesy of the Artist.

This work is from Daniel Boccato’s parrotpainting series depicting female figures and their pet parrots. A drawing made with pastels, crayon, watercolor, and marker is mounted on linen, itself adorned with painted reliefs. Toggling between abstraction and figuration, Boccato layers various mediums and artistic traditions—nude, still life, portraiture, collage—to create a multivalent, yet playful work. –Courtesy of The Kitchen

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.
