Artist Name

Danny Joe Rose III

Born: 1988

Danny Joe Rose III is an artist and educator who has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad. They seek inspiration in their travels through sunsets, rock formations, and the various landscapes they’ve encountered. Experimentation plays a significant role in their process and has led Rose to adopt an intuitive method of painting, relying on memory and impulse. Rose’s minimalistic and hard-edged abstract works are created using acrylic, enamel, and oil pastels.


Danny Joe Rose III In The Studio

My work explores themes of nature, inner worlds, and subliminal realities. My art is often inspired by fleeting memories of forms and colors, experienced both in the waking world and in my subconscious. I approach each new idea with an experimenter’s eye, leaving room for chance and risk along the way. The work that emerges is layered with colors, shapes, and textures.
