Artist Statement

How we see God invariably affects how we see ourselves.

If God is our father, as believers know him to be, what kind of father is he? A loving father watches his children with expectant fascination while a dysfunctional father expects only harm from his children and behaves accordingly. From God's unique vantage, are we frail and troubled by shadows or are we brilliant manifestations of eternal hope? Our personal beliefs about ourselves are shaped by the answer to that question.

Daniel Marosi's drawings and paintings explore the duality of viewing ourselves from God's perspective. From an overhead angle, we may experience our personal need for connection while feeling isolated and self-conscious as voyeurs.

Marosi's work is influenced by the surreal psychodramas of graphic novelists Ben Katchor and Lynda Barry as well as Robert Longo's "Men in the Cities" series.

Besides being a designer and artist, Marosi is also a keyboardist for the band at Lighthouse Church in South Beach, performing every Sunday, with God's blessing.
