This series of paintings by artist Adam Daily is stunning. Measuring 9’x9’ these works really pack a punch. They caught my eye from a distance and upon closer inspection I was surprised to find no brush strokes. The color is perfectly flat and smooth and the edges are wonderfully crisp. I spoke with Daily about his process. He said it took a lot of trial and error to get this effect and finally found that applying the colors with a spray gun did the trick. I thought for sure they’d been silkscreened.
Each painting is constructed with 2 pieces of Sintra that are then mounted to a frame. After taping off the desired areas, Daily uses an acrylic spray to apply the colors one at a time, working from dark to light. The result is a print-like smoothness.
This body of work has a really nice graphic quality to it. Bold colors and geometric shapes come together in an almost pattern-like fashion. While each piece uses a different motif, they complement one another nicely. The dimensions and angles used create a very dynamic feeling for a look both modern and inviting.
