Life is tough and Dutch painter Daniel Martin captures that sentiment from the perspective of his models. Focusing on identify crises of sorts, his portraits are often muddled, lacking definition and meaning in order to properly relay the sense of meaningless often experience by those caught in an emotional or even physical limbo. Through splattered brushstrokes, muted colors and often eyeless expressions, Daniel Martin's work speaks louder than words.

Daniel Martin may deal in the idea of chaos, but there is something cathartic about his work. People will be able to gaze at these portraits and walk away with a sense of their own understanding and perhaps some deep revelations. The art speaks to the audience in an intimate way that is therapeutic.
