Dan Starling creates artworks by juxtaposing different aesthetic traditions in order to produce contradictions that illuminate the unresolved antagonisms of our culture. Taking popular subjects as a starting point, his work plays with the formal conventions of narrative through intervention, extrapolation and reconfiguration to explore latent possibilities. Starling’s work is an effusive and eclectic approach to art, making use of all manner of media and genres. Having studied at the University of British Columbia, he went on to complete a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (2005) and a Meisterschüler from the Städelschule, Frankfurt (2011). Starling has recently exhibited his work at Tyler Wood Gallery, San Francisco. Starling lives in Vancouver.
