Darren Waterston

Intermingling abstraction and precise detail, Darren Waterston’s surreal compositions illustrate the artist’s fascination with natural science, philosophical beliefs, and landscape. “I look to the act of painting to find a way to materialize what is unseeable—to take a feeling, our dreams, even our collective loss, into something that says yes, I recognize that, I know what that is,” he says. To create his dreamlike canvases, Waterston meticulously builds up layers of color, giving the surface a distinctive luster and creating depth of field.
