About The Artwork

This is a series I have been working on for over twenty years on and off. Some years I don't do any, others - like a couple of years ago when I traveled to Nova Scotia I engaged intensively with the project. It is based on the drawings made by snails on the wet sand in the inter-tidal zone. They are part of an ongoing series of works involving collaboration between the snails and me. I choreograph the snails’ starting positions, and then photograph the marks they make over time. I tend to think of the snail pieces as a metaphor for the order we establish in our lives, and how the element of chance enters in to shape the result - regardless of how much we attempt to structure it. Yes, John Cage is here somewhere.

Daniel Ranalli grew up in coastal Connecticut. He has been working as a visual artist for over 45 years. His work is in the permanent collections of over thirty museums here and abroad including the Museum of Modern Art (NY), Museum of Fine Arts Boston, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Nelson-Atkins Museum and National Gallery of American Art (Smithsonian). He has been included in over 150 solo and group shows in the U.S. and abroad. Daniel has also been the recipient of two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and multiple fellowships from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Although largely situated within the medium of photography, Ranalli’s work can often be characterized as conceptual and/or environmental. The work is frequently rooted in the balance between control and chance – such as the unforeseen results in the photogram, the found scrawls on a classroom chalkboard or the path of a snail in wet sand. In 1993 Daniel Ranalli founded the Graduate Program in Arts Administration at Boston University where he taught until 2015. At which time it was one of the largest arts administration programs in the U.S. and typically enrolled 80-90 students in both the visual and performing arts tracks. WIth a significant international presence, Daniel brought BU students to Barcelona and Cuba to better understand international approaches to managing arts organizations.
