Sacred Thunder

Barry Lee Darling
January 26 through February 23, 2018
Reception: Friday, January 26 | 6 - 8 p.m.
Gallery talk at 6:30 p.m.

An artist from Upstate New York, Barry Darling's work is a stunning example of American vernacular that synthesizes worldly experiences and various perspectives into vibrant, full-bodied paintings. Intrigued by the inferred stories generated within the act of manipulating familiar colors and images, his process is led by experimentation and discovery. Through visual poetics defined within intensely layered colors and playful engagements, Darling's compositions have a richness that evoke emotion and exude a depth of wonder, inciting beautiful contemplation.
