(An artist’s statement can be a few sentences or a short paragraph long. Generally, an artist statement should only be between 100-200 words because shorter statements are better for the average attention span.)

I’m Perreaoult Daniels, an American Artist.
Born to James and Quincy Daniels at Freedmen’s Hospital in 1962.
I studied Architectural Drafting and attended one semester at the Corcoran School of Art.
At that time in my life I was estranged from my family.
They did not know I was one of the children molested while in the boy scouts.
They did not know I was Schizophrenic.
They did not know I could pass out from laughing due to heart disease.
My mother said Art was my gift, and called me the prodigal son
I inherited art from them
And probably my Point Of View from my environment
I respond to the controversies of my thoughts. Which I admit, maybe compromised.
I conceptualise An idea. I research it Design It Collect my materials and then.
It’s difficult to explain. Certainly I prepare the canvas- but there is no exact path. But you know it’s like muscle memory.
I’ve never stopped making it.
Though it cost so much.
I used to describe my work as Expressionism. The subjects sex, race, religion, politics, death.
