|Objects of Curiosity|
Friendly lunacy and logic do an odd kind of dance in the assemblage art of Dan Levin.
In his approach to the medium this artist understands that logic, even of a twisted variety, can prevent the appearance of
randomness in work thatís all about discarded objects. Despite wild-eyed humor and hints of chaos, Levinís art has a
surprising cohesiveness of design through a series of variations on a particular theme. While his art may startle and
amuse the observer, there is a method of the artistís careful devising.
Levin was born in Los Angeles in 1962, raised near New York City and returned to California where he earned a degree in
graphic design and fine art in 1984. He has exhibited in Santa Barbara,
Los Angeles, San Francisco, Australia and France with work in collections from New York City to New Zealand.
Having spent four years living in Australia and Europe, the artist now resides in Santa Barbara, exploring nature and
