The paintings of Daniel Ambrose are renowned for their extraordinary luminosity and remarkable power to evoke a spiritual sense of place. Highly proficient in painting in oil and watercolor, Ambrose is also a master of painting in the historic medium of egg tempera, perfected by the Old Masters centuries ago. To create his timeless egg tempera paintings, Ambrose makes his own paint from a 15th century Italian recipe, using egg yolks and natural earth pigments procured from around the world. His technique incorporates weaving hundreds of translucent layers of paint into a rich tapestry of subtle hues, imparting to his serene paintings a sublime, ethereal luminosity seldom found in contemporary art.
A Florida native with a professional career spanning over 25 years, Ambrose’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo gallery shows and many fine museums including; Jacksonville Museum of Art, Florida State Capitol Museum, Leepa-Rattner Museum, The Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Gibbes Museum of Art and the Museum of Florida Art. He has received numerous Best in Show and Awards of Excellence. His works are featured in private, corporate, and public collections including the Permanent Collection of The Museum of Arts and Sciences.
He is a member of the American Society of Marine Artists, and a co-founder of the American Tonalist Society. Original paintings are represented exclusively in fine art galleries along the Atlantic seaboard. For more information visit www.danielambrose.com.
