Darren James MacPherson. MacPherson's vibrant figurative work offers an exploration of the subtle complexity surrounding the human condition. Working in acrylics, spray paint, oil pastel and crayon his work recalls personal territories that range from city environments to his family history.
Within his art can be found infusions of Indian and Japanese influences, that are lingering memories and experiences from travelling and living in Asia. These are enhanced with intricate tattoo-like motifs to create the urban style viewers can expect from his paintings. Loose expressive brushwork with multiple layering are part of the hunt to disover and form the perfect character and figure.
