G. Daniel Massad

Name: G. Daniel Massad
URL: http://personal-pages.lvc.edu/massad/
Bio: Born 1946, Oklahoma City. Graduated from Princeton in 1969, with two things he considered as useful to him as his degree: his first box of pastels, and what would prove to be a deeply influential lifelong connection with Toshiko Takaezu, his instructor in ceramics.
Media: Pastel. Massad observes that the dense surface texture he seeks requires many layers of minute revision, ten pastels constitute roughly three years of almost full-time work at the easel.
Subjects: Still life. Massad has called himself a "rhyparographer" – a painter of common things. That’s a new word in my lexicon.
Style: Meticulous, realistic, sober.
