Daniel Brush--gold without boundaries ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the course of thirty years, working in virtual seclusion from the mainstream, Daniel Brush has created an unparalleled body of work. His career includes international painting exhibitions, a fifteen-year period of seclusion and study, and an intense immersion into the mysteries of gold. His large-scale canvases and drawings- inspired by the expressive, disciplined gestures of the Noh theatre- integrate the artist's profound understanding of Asian thought with the removed drama in modernist painting. Brush's three-dimensional works- products of solitary thought, study and experimentation- are included in many public, private and royal collections. This book is a sampling of his works

"Combining new research, never-before-published color photographs, and detailed entries on each artwork, American Radiance is indispensable for students and collectors, yet broadly appealing to the folk art market.
