When Daly stands outside of his studio watching the light interacting with the air, with the earth and life in between. He watches as the day advances and the golden light changes in hue and intensity, altering the depth and power of the landscape.
Daly thinks that it is during the pivotal moment between day and night, night and day, that all the majesty and grandeur of the world becomes heightened, more vivid, more present. This kairos moment, a supreme moment, the pivotal point in the daily cycle that comes and goes, endlessly repeating and yet never the same, this is what he strives to capture. The golden light of dawn and the gold red light of sunset are captured in the works.
