Being raised on a ranch, I think of cattle as big dogs. Large, mellow animals living in a world of high desert color and texture. I love the stars against the darkest blue black skies, a little flower growing in the barren earth and the change of colors as the clouds sweep by and the sun changes.

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.
