About the Artist:
Daniel Embree works with many mediums, including painting, printmaking, and performance art. Fascinated by the beautiful, incidental shapes of the human body, he uses gestures and dramatic poses to convey the intent and emotion of his subjects.
Embree grew up in Chicago's northern suburbs. Raised in the Mormon faith, Embree served as a full-time missionary in the greater Los Angeles area from 2005-2007. He graduated with a BFA in studio art from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, in 2009.
In 2010, Embree left Utah for Massachusetts where he could be married and live more openly as a gay man. Since moving to New England, Embree has exhibited work in the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg, MA, 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington, MA, and in various galleries in Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
Daniel Embree is currently pursing a master's degree at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, in conjunction with Tufts University. Recent themes in his work include exclusion and marginality, power dynamics, sexuality, religious identity, ritual, and masculinity.
