Daniel Ney is a US Army veteran of the Iraq War.
Daniel E. Ney is a Sculptor born and raised throughout the rolling plains of Kansas. Forming the foundation, his values have provided an essential life compass as he navigated two military deployments throughout his college career. He began his journey as an architect, then as a student in Drawing. Lacking the depth, he gravitated towards sculpture and cast bronze, iron, aluminum and stone. The casting process allows him to explore his personal narrative through the repetition and labor involved in fine art metal casting. Via his life experiences, Daniel seeks to retrieve and reflect on the identities he has most intimately associated with.
His work has been shown at the Nebraska National Undergraduate Juried Art Exhibition Eisentrager-Howard Gallery, William T. Kemper Art Gallery, Mingenback Art Gallery, Mark A. Chapman Gallery and was selected for the Annual Juried Commerce Bank Scholarship Show. His public commission and permanent installation work can be found in the state capital city of Topeka, Kansas, the National Public Art Archive and Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum. Daniel received his BFA in Sculpture and a Leadership Studies Minor from Kansas State University in 2015. He currently lives and works in Kansas City.
