Our imagination transforms the black print in a book to a world of color. Words take off in a flutter of wings as prose blossoms.

This piece was made with acrylics, found objects, paint skins, metal leaf, and cast objects on a cradled masonite board with finished edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Darlene

Darlene McElroy sees creating art as similar to reading Turkish coffee grounds – a story becomes revealed as one looks at the surface, texture and color. Her works use a variety of materials ranging from acrylics paints to collage. She currently lives in New Mexico and has been greatly influenced by the work of Robert Rauschenberg. She encourages viewers to search for their narrative interpretation when viewing a work.
