Daniel practices sculpture since more than 40 years and has worked with living models half this time. It is for him an inexhaustible and always actual subject.
Although the ancient game of the model, the workshop, the pose, the stele, the nakedness, the clay is expressed consistently in the history of art, he always reinvented himself by the fascination of the other as well as the difficult and troubling doubt to identify the whole reality.
