Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Program Overview


Darrell Keith Roberts

I am a painter painter. I am interested in the physical act of painting. I am immersed in a lifetime of art history. I respond to, view and react to the mammoth wall size paintings of the 1950’s. By creating thick visceral paintings, I squeeze those paintings down to small scale paintings which still have the same amount of power to capture the viewer’s attention in the same amount of wall space. Recently, I have started making some larger scale pieces to reflect the viewers scale in the presence of the painting, so things do change with time. -Darrell Roberts
