Artists can be torn between their obsession to paint and their loved ones. Who or what wins out depends on everything involved. This piece is composed of collage, acrylics, image transfers and cast objects on a cradled masonite panel. The sides are finished in brown and it comes 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.
