Daniel Kaniess used the gestural movement of humanity in his figure paintings to capture both the ephemeral nature of our existence and the searing permanent images of our memories.
Daniel Kaniess (1955-2012) graduated from the University of Wisconsin. He was awarded McKnight Foundation Fellowships, a Bush Fellowship, and a Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship & Grant, among other honors.
