“In distancing himself from the customary pictorial process, today Daniel Senise works in formats that escape Iiterality. By presenting formal opposition, he comments on issues relative to painting and representation of the world without relying on figuration. Thus, he conveys reflections about the nature/culture binomial in the worn bed sheets, as well as in the grayed mass of recycled papers.
This is also the case in Mil (Thousand) — the thousandth piece produced by the artist — a series of brick reliefs, made from recycled exhibition invitations and catalogs, suspended on the walls to suggest hanging paintings. The title celebrates and pokes fun at having reached his thousandth piece, while it simultaneously questions the excess of information and imagery printed on paper that is dispersed throughout the art world, its content becoming more white noise.”
