Daniel Sharp

Using geometric and lyrical abstraction, Daniel Sharp’s paintings explore the  ordinary and remarkable aspects of regular life. Treating abstract painting as portraits of a certain time and place, he captures a thing’s affectiveness in the truth of its temporality and context.

Daniel Sharp was born in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada. He has lived in Ottawa since 1982. Sharp worked at Artspace Gallery in Peterborough Ontario (1980-82) and was Artistic Director at the Ottawa artist-run centre Gallery 101 (1989-91). From 1991 until 2017 he worked as a program officer, then manager and curator with the Canadian government's art collection for embassies and diplomatic missions abroad. 

Sharp studied painting and design at York University in Toronto, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in 1979. He later undertook graduate studies in art and cultural theory at Carleton University in Ottawa (1985-89).
