We are trapped in cages of our own making. If we look, we see the door is open and all we have to do is spread our wings. This piece is made of acrylic paint, collage and transfers on a cradled wood panel. 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.
