Artist's Statement
by Dan Ivec

I am mostly known for having lost my way on various trips throughout our large country. These four images are staged portraits of birds and other citizens I have encountered while getting lost. I hope to be with them again, hearing their jokes and also drinking a whiskey.

"Bird Leaving a Stolen City"

"Almost Like Birds"

"The Chain Smoking Mountains"

"The Fortune Tellers"


Packingtown Review – Vol.5, Fall 2013

Dan Ivec shares his birthday with Jan Kleczyński, a musician and writer who sadly lost to Szymon Winawer in the 1868 Warsaw City Chess Championship.
