Darren Orange brings yet another powerful and provocative series of oil paintings, pushing the unseen boundaries of mark making as expression. With the challenges of today’s world many of us have been forced to change our perceptions while responding to a shift of paradigm. Employing meditation as practice Orange delivers a spirited departure from his past style with bold fresh swathes of color echoing the fractal nuance of the eastern sunrise or the depth of an old growth forest floor. With the still gritty element that has been the pinnacle of his work for decades he depicts quieter moments, leaving room for reflection with dedicated stillness through the art of art making itself. With intuitive mark making at the forefront of his process each painting becomes an exercise of part dance and part meditation and direct interpretations of his strong sense of place.
