Daniel Garca's figurative paintings are portrait-like images where the identity of the character or object depicted has been erased. The full-blown images in the center of his compositions, although executed in a realistic manner, have no detail. Garca erases the detail during the process of creating the image by frotagge and other processes that interfere with the acrylic medium employed. The artist also uses the grid in order to blow up the images and place them within the composition. He has found inspiration in the turn of the century photographs and illustrations of medical instruments and in 15th and 16th century Flemish paintings.
His images have no specific narrative and are a product of his own memory. Although his paintings are not political and do not address a specific subject, there is a suggested comment on the past socio-economic instability of his native Argentina and elsewhere. The images chosen, faces with no identity, stretchers and wrapped heads of wounded-like figures, and the treatment to the surface, tend to recall the vices and illnesses of the political and social conditions of the past repressive governments and their present consequences.
