The aquarelles of Daniel Hardyns give a slick and beautiful picture of everyday’s life. Hardyns is an expert in painting the vivid interaction between light and shadow that is so typical for watercolours. He has this particular gift for capturing that unique radiance of a particular moment in time that transforms an ordinary scenery into a magical experience. Unsuspected shadows bring vibrance into his compositions and one may even notice a hint of symbolism. Just as in real life, where light is most often the main source and the power of attraction of all life, he finds at his best the perfect balance between the darkness and shades of matter and existence and the delivering, jubilatory powers of light.
