“My desire as an artist is that the images I paint would point to the Creator, and not
to me, the conveyor. J.S. Bach said it well as he signed his work, “Soli Deo Gloria,” To God
alone be the glory.” – Daniel F. Gerhartz
Daniel F. Gerhartz was born in 1965 in Kewaskum, Wisconsin where he now lives with his wife Jennifer and their three young children. His interest in art piqued at an early age when a teenage friend suggested they spend one dreary afternoon drawing. It was at that moment that he discovered his lifework.
Gerhartz’ compelling paintings resonate an honesty, integrity and a directness immediately evident to the viewer. The artist’s skillful and technically adept work celebrates the created world, human form , personal relationships and connection with landscapes and environments of special importance.
