Reception for “Fleeting Presence: The Liminal Art of Daniel Sprick” at the Madden Museum

January 19 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

Please join us to celebrate the reopening of the Madden Museum and the exhibition “Fleeting Presence: The Liminal Art of Daniel Sprick” curated by sixteen University of Denver students.

Organized by a cohort of sixteen students from the School of Art & Art History at the University of Denver, this exhibition explores formal and thematic tensions in the work of Colorado artist Daniel Sprick. Through his adept handling of form, space, color, and light, Sprick creates hauntingly beautiful paintings rooted in the realism of Dutch artists like Johannes Vermeer. His paintings reflect our world back to us, but it’s a world imbued with hints of melancholy and hidden meaning. Embracing ambiguity, Sprick’s art brings together seeming opposites – life and death, stillness and dynamism, transience and permanence ­– transforming our everyday existence into something magical and mysterious. 

Curated by: Lauren Anuszewski, Sydney Barofsky, Alex Blom, Seb Brady, Lexi Ferenzi, Morgan Fleetwood, McKenna Gale, James Grau, Allene Leak, Patrick Lucas, Sydney McCain, Anna McDonald, Claire Motsinger, Andrew Nadeau, Emily Oxford-Pickeral, and Jordan Reed.
