Darren White PAINTER
Darren's art draws upon memories of “place” and feelings of nostalgia to create works that hopefully brings a sense of calm to the observer.
In memories, details are stripped back, so when painting, Darren likes to be guided solely by the feelings of the particular moment he is drawing upon:
"In the last few years, I have become really aware and fascinated by the way humans interact with and impact nature, mostly among coastal fringes. The development of these areas can sometimes be seen as a negative and at early exposure this can be the easiest interpretation. But, with time and frequent interactions, these feelings can turn to an appreciation of the many eras that these buildings span and represent. My artworks often speak to these emotions, expressing my fascination of places throughout the world, where the ocean disperses its energy onto a city edge."
