(born 1966 Bron, France)
Daniel Firman's work, which is always centered around the figure, displays his interest in physics, physical energy, movement and movement’s relation to space. His life-size, human figures show people momentarily caught moving. They illustrate the effect of physical forces on the body. Formally, he adheres to a realistic representation of the human body and its movement and avoids the hyper-accurate reproduction of facial features or of realistic renderings of, for, example, such things as skin. He works still evoke the idea of the double through their powerful concentration on the physical presence of a body in space.
