Dan Starling creates artworks by juxtaposing different aesthetic traditions in order to produce contradictions that illuminate the unresolved antagonisms of our culture. Taking popular subjects as a starting point, his work plays with the formal conventions of narrative through intervention, extrapolation and reconfiguration to explore latent possibilities. His work is an effusive and eclectic approach to art,making use of all manner of media and genres. Having studied at the University of British Columbia, he has a BFA from Emily Carr University (2005) and a Meisterschüler from the Städelschule, Frankfurt (2011). He has recently exhibited his work in Europe at Kunsthall Oslo and Frankfurter Kunstverein; in North America at 221A, Malaspina Printmakers and The Apartment, Vancouver and Tyler Wood Gallery, San Francisco. Starling lives and works in Vancouver.
