Dan Herschlein

Working in sculpture, drawing, and performance, Dan Herschlein uses images of the body and horror tropes to explore the human desire for comfort and emotional understanding. Herschlein’s sculptures and reliefs in wood, plaster, and wax depict headless, scarecrow-like figures and dismembered body parts, which, in their totality, feel simultaneously unsettling and surprisingly tender. The voyeur is a recurring character in Herschlein’s oeuvre – not as a threat but as the ultimate "outsider." Alienation, aloneness, and fear also pervade Herschlein’s art, with the intent of sparking deeper self-reflection.
