Dan May describes his art as “not from a specific time or place; it is surreal in nature and puts forth suggestive themes that can lead the viewer toward a unique story.” In turn, each story is outlined by its setting and often grounded in the natural beauty of northern Michigan, where the artist lives and works. Spectral forests and rolling hills shrouded in storm clouds frame characters whose psychological intensity swirls with the wind. May’s narrative paintings are rich in detail and layered with mystery. Facial expressions might be hidden from view, but body language reflects the drama of life on a personal and sometimes planetary scale. The artist is wont to include a “glimmer of hope even in the saddest of moments,” and in paintings that include otherworldly animals and creatures, humans are often messengers of emotion.
May began drawing and painting before the age of five, and since studying illustration in college he has explored new techniques, new media, and new worlds, particularly that of the pop surrealist movement. He has exhibited his paintings in galleries and museums throughout the world, including as part of the 2013 Suggestivism show at the Acquario Romano in Rome.
