Inman Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Darren Waterston, Eventide. Opening with an artist's reception from 6-8pm on Friday, January 2, the exhibition will be on view through February 23, 2018.
Channeling the specters and emotions that permeate landscape, Waterston's new paintings create an unsteady and tenuous world. He paints dream-states and twilight, the moments at which daylight and darkness touch. "Eventide suggests the liminal in-between states both in dreams and twilight," Waterston writes. Gossamer shapes and shadows emerge; playful chimera, phantoms and ghost-like forms occupy watery landscapes and celestial realms. The paintings often juxtapose fastidiously painted representation up against loose, viscous gestures, stains, and abrasions.
