2017 Resident Alumni in Visual Arts, Daniel Handal, has a new exhbition opening at CLAMP Gallery in New York City this summer. 

"My project delves into the topics of individuality, nonconformity, and authenticity through the use of photographs of still-life flowers arranged in corrugated boxes—this technique creates a trompe l'oeil effect that prompts the viewer to reflect on the connection between truth and perception."

Daniel Handal is a Honduran born artist who lives and works in New York. He received his BS in Applied Sciences from Rutgers University and studied Photography at the International Center of Photography. Handal's work centers on portraiture and explores issues of gender, sexuality, identity, and community. He has had a solo at the Brooklyn Public Library (Flatbush Branch) and has been shown in group exhibitions at the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Deborah Colton Gallery in Houston and The powerHouse Arena in New York among others. He has been exhibited internationally at the Australian Centre for Photography and MKII in London. Handal's work has been published in The Huffington Post, Slate and Hyperallergic. He has been awarded with residencies at the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts and the Center for Photography at Woodstock.
