Dan Abernathy, Pinedale
Dan Abernathy is known for his writing, art, jewelry and as a vagabond who walks in dreams of a pure, hedonistic life. This Renaissance man is also known as a poet, with some of the most illogical views and inspirations seen, or heard. His voice, be it in his words or his art, is a collection of oddities, fascinations, desires, and obsessions – a road map of sorts, tracking the life of a man that can’t and won’t fit in.
Dan is truly inspired from thoughts of a seemingly higher dimension. Each piece is created and formed from his unending ideas and visions that simply arrive from the cosmos. He makes available all his perspectives frozen in frames as well as the fluid, “random thoughts, often meandering and incomplete, rants, praise, love, words of meaning, and words of too much meaning.”
Since 1980, Abernathy’s home base has been Pinedale, Wyoming, but he is most comfortable when he is on the road and is constantly traveling in a converted school bus. His visual life expands and evolves as he travels the globe on alert for new sights to capture and experience. Abernathy’s devotion to his art, writing and travel continues to lead him all over the world to compose and share. For, “what best describes an artist is the same thing which describes an adventurer,” he writes. “The longing for something intense, grand, revolutionary, new horizons with different natural laws.”
