Daniel Dugan’s work is his meditative expression of one continuous line that flows on an uninterrupted course: there is no break or crossing of the line. He started this experiment at the age of 10 and built a diverse body in his Hollywood studio using an array of materials. The line has no pattern as he seeks randomness but in a confined space. It’s like the chaos of life with its unexpected twists turns, but apparent order. He has upcoming projects in Miami, London, San Marcos, and Havana.
