Utilizing found objects as a point of departure for his work, Daniel Sharbono explores the connection between the simple elegance and aesthetic qualities of everyday objects through a playful visual pun of painting a screwdriver and seeing a screwdriver. The execution in this work is multi-layered with clear formalist qualities of shape, line, and color, with the addition of text and the inclusion of how-to instructions. The working up of acrylic on the board, the use of wallpaper, and adding of actual screws and screwdrivers are sophisticatedly combined to make this a successful, yet original, artwork.
Sharborno lives and works in Minot, N.D. He and his wife, Allyssa, are founders of 62 Doors, an artist community based in Minot.
