Daniel Heidkamp

Born 1980, Wakefield, MA. Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.



Daniel Heidkamp's process is rooted in observation. Painting from life in the tradition of Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, and David Hockney, the artist captures fleeting moments in the form of landscape, interiors, and figuration to speak to the subjectivity of memory and, ultimately, to extract the ethereal from the ordinary. 

Heidkamp received his BFA from School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA in 2003. Solo exhibitions include Half Gallery (New York), Loyal Gallery (Stockholm), Pace Prints (New York), White Columns (New York), The Journal Gallery (New York). Group exhibitions include Almine Rech (New York), Derek Eller Gallery (New York), Brand New Gallery (Milan), Wilkinson Gallery (London), Marlborough Chelsea (New York), The Journal Gallery (New York), Jack Hanley Gallery (New York). Heidkamp’s work was included in the exhibition Talking Pictures at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2017, and his work from this exhibition is now included in The Met’s permanent collection. Heidkamp is featured in the book Landscape Painting Now published by D.A.P.
