September 9 – October 9

Darren Orange
We are excited to present a new and dynamic collection of explosive oil paintings by Darren Orange, delving further into abstraction. Within the series “Paracosm” Orange continues with his bold and energetic style, employing movement synonymous with dance and filling our new exhibition space with powerful color and energy. His process always intertwined with finished composition demands the viewer to take note and participate in the echo left behind from its creation. We also extend congratulations to Orange for his recent award of a month-long residency at Ucross Ranch in Wyoming, granted through partnership with the Ucross Foundation and the Hallie Ford Foundation.
