Daniel Deters
Chicago, Illinois

Daniel Deters’ path to becoming an artist was anything but simple. He was adopted from an orphanage and grew up on a farm where he had no exposure to fine art. At 18, Daniel heard Beethoven for the first time. “It felt as if a kind of muting skin, a veil, was torn away from my awareness,” he recalls. “I had self-understanding. Purpose.” He began to pursue creative outlets including musical composition, film, and photography. Daniel’s current body of work is best described as digital etchings. The images begin as digital photographs at 300dpi, which is considered high-resolution, but Daniel finds it insufficient to capture the complexities of trees, his chosen subject matter. He increases the image resolution to 1200dpi and uses a digital pen to eliminate visual noise, highlighting the intricacies of each twig and branch. The final result is astoundingly sharp black-and-white imagery that represents an elevated and artful interpretation of nature photography.
