The paintings of Daniel Gantner are most certainly studies. All his paintings are unique experiments - he is not monomaniac with a mantra-like, ever-repeating working method. The works relate to each other, there is a certain genealogy, they form a cluster, however they are definitely not variations on a theme. If he would ever try to be a writer, I am sure he would write essays or novellas. He would create - in the manner of Borges - unique and closed cosmoi where it is impossible to tell the difference between fiction and quotation.
