The compositions of Daniel Gonçalves are bewitching. They seem to contain a mystery, as if the artist mastered a magical language able to translate the hidden mechanisms of the world. These art pieces are shaped during the night, according to a precise and unchanging ritual, Daniel Gonçalves always creates with the same tools, a pen and a compass, on the same chair and always facing east. He creates without sketches, in a meditative focus state, close to a state of trance, connected, according to him, to universal psychic forces. Gradually, the artist is committed in circular compositions more and more geometric in an attempt to reach perfection: « I hope to transmit purity, precision, perfection, balance, and passing on this energy to the viewers, based on elements that are common to all » (interview in RAW VISION, n°101).
