Juan Genoves

In the lobby of Daniel hangs a giant painting by Juan Genoves. I had not heard of Genoves until last weekend in NYC when I attended my niece's first birthday at Daniel, but I really liked his painting of a crowd of people seen from high overhead. The “crowd” is one of the recurring themes in his work.

Up close, his paintings have a 3D quality as the quantity of the paint used for each person in the crowd rises a bit off the canvas, reinforcing the depth created by each person's shadow.
