Jacob Daniels Featured at Studio 140 in Banner Elk

Studio 140 in downtown Banner Elk is currently featuring paintings by artist Jacob Daniels. “In my life I have come to see that creativity is not something contrived, but discovered,” Daniels says. “I am a sojourner, striving to learn the precise principles that are seen in nature, of art and design, and translate them into my own voice on canvas. I paint using practices derived from old world studio techniques. My philosophy of art is based from regional, spiritual, and humanitarian influences. Art is a parable and my goal is to create thought-provoking imagery that is universally relatable, yet each viewer walks away with his or her own personal story.”
