critic remarks on Daniel's work:
"...Daniel Friedemann still experiences, despite some
"ironic-satyrical refraction", within himself
the genuine meditative antipodes, which lead from artificial
ecstasy to calmness of mind, to concentration. Thereby he
overcomes the fatal confusion of magic and mysticism in
Art Nouveau. An impressive example of this gives the oil-painting
"Under the roof of pinetrees..."
"...Romanticism still a la Caspar David Friedrich,
still also the sentimentalic effect-colouring of "Liberty".
But also already the colder tones of reflection, the farewell
to not only personal youth. What remains is the vision of
transcendent idyllic, the harmony of spirit and nature the
human being, earth and heaven. If only there in the eyes
of a woman ,moulded by happiness and grief, in a landscape
where blossoming and ravage seem to struggle with one another.
The artist still finds himself in-between a nature-environment
and abstruse visions, in a still sceptical confidence However
the constructive components in the ego are stronger then
the appearing images of a demonical environment. The strength
of the self-confident ego grows, despite its being put into
a maniristic scenery of the kind that our Viennese and Parisian
grandpas loved so much ..."
