Essay By Eliot Benitez

The Once and Future Creation: the Work of Daniel Staal.

In its best sense, the expression

"to the artistically gifted, thought can be an embarrassing deficiency"

is revisited time and again by the great artists.
It would have to do with an effort made by the artist to capture the essential perception, sensation, whatever the essence of artistic intuition might be.
A great artist is an accomplished craftsman in revealing to us these intuitions and in hiding from us those thoughts.

Specially in the plastic arts, the effort has to be extraneous given the ontological proximity between vision and thought.
The temptation arises to compare this to the secret revealed by Prometeus: artistic intuition having been a privilege exclusive to the gods,
Prometeus' "problem" was not that he taught us how to think but that he taught us how to see.
This was truly unpardonable: Prometeus established the possibility of the access of humanity to the specifically divine.


Having said all this, it is clear that the attempts at art criticism, although legitimately human,
cannot afford the possibility of doing justice to the work of art. In this sense,
a comment, yes, a general comment about our present lives and their relationship to art would be a much better homage
since today's great art has to do with prophecy. Humanity's troubles these days seem to require superhuman solutions: the paradox facing humanity
at this juncture is the strength of evil. The clash, the still definitive challenge posed not only to us but to God is presented to us by Daniel Staal
with rare eloquence in the Dark Matrix. Petrified horror deterred by steel-like determination.
These symbols, which are our life, which were given to us at the beginning of history,
and which the misdirected workings of reason tried to humble in so many ways,
are stronger, clearer and more vital than ever before.

This painting alone should be enough to secure Staal's place among the great artists of the end of the century.
