What do I love about the art of Daniel Marlatt?

An invitation to visit a new outdoor gallery was the first connection I had to Artist, Daniel Marlatt. In the first place the concept of an outdoor gallery along side a highway was curious for all kinds of reasons. Weather, traffic, visibility, direct sunlight, just to name a few concerns. Still, I had to see for myself.

His name is Daniel Marlatt, he and his beautiful wife own and operate the Miskwaa Art Studio & Outdoor Gallery at 250 Edwina Drive in Trent Lakes, Ontario near Bobcaygeon. On approach to his gallery I turned right off the main hwy and onto the meandering cottage road called Edwina Dr. A route that by itself is full of inspiring scenes for any artist. Not far along that road I arrived at The outdoor gallery. Essentially, there is Daniels home, a shed/workshop where the artist creates his own amazing works, and the sprawling completely tree covered rock/grass covered characteristically Canadian Shield property which cascades down to the Miskwaa Ziibi river and flows into Little Bald Lake. Big rock faces, wandering river over falls and through passages in the rocks, is a sight for tired and sore city eyes any time of the year. Just seeing the property is worth the drive alone, not to mention the wonderful gallery.

The gallery: We are not talking about your typical run of the mill gallery with walls, ceiling and bright halogen lights, no at all. During the late spring to Fall seasons throughout the forest all around the property are grids gracefully fixed to the trees. Hanging on those grids are some of Ontario’s finest works by some of Ontario’s finest artists. The overhead leaf canopy is so dense that sunlight barely touches the art and any concerns about light are immediately dispelled. Such a beautiful way to view art and it’s all managed daily by Daniel. Every day he brings the art out of his secure storage, hangs it and at days end puts it all away again. Astonishing care and effort I must say.

Then there is Daniels works of art to enjoy, and you will. What I love about his creations is the way he utilizes the ribbons and textures of the existing surfaces to evolve the shapes of rocks, trees, rivers, and those dramatic skies! It’s all brought into play with the high gloss pour over the surface. This just unifies and enhances the deep colours of the stains and natural contours of the material. You will be mesmerized when you stand in front of them, and Daniel will be there to assist with any questions you have about his process.

Daniel Marlatt is self taught and his goal as an artist is to see his work bring happiness and enjoyment to the homes where they are acquired for generations to come. He sees this as his legacy. I quite agree.

His advice to budding artists: “Don’t be afraid to try everything, take chances”.
