Joining Moniker Art Fair 2016 for the first time, London-based artist Darren John presents new works from his 'Parallel' series, located in Project Space 3B.
Supported by Proof London these new works take the nature imagination itself as subject matter and continue his project that explores the value of the untamed creative spirit and the centrality of this mind set in artistic expression.
John’s new works aim to celebrate creativity and the liberated imagination through an action focussed approach that favours a primary colour palette and a stark contrast between the dark and the light. This approach to image-making nods towards a notion of the mind and hand acting as one entity and these horizontally applied works embrace an organic unpredictability, relinquishing a portion of control to gravity.
By creating these works with this first time approach, this series not only invites us to join John on his quest for unbound creative liberty, but also captures and lays bare the story of the physical process of the works, in three dimensional form.
