STRIKING A POSE
PHOTO-REALISTIC WILDLIFE PORTRAITS WITH A DRAMATIC CONTEMPORARY TWIST.
This trio of high-impact statement pieces place their magnificent subjects against a distinctive single colour backdrop to create a hypnotic and lifelike presence
The only hint of their environment is seen through the reflections in their eyes and this almost cinematic effect makes each animal seem to project beyond the plane of the canvas, bringing them into sharp and immediate relief.
The exquisite detail and lifelike quality of each work comes from painstaking research. Darryn collects reference material on field trips into the bush as well as at breeding centres before heading into the studio.
“MY INTENTION IS TO CREATE A STRONG AND LIFELIKE PRESENCE, BUT ALSO TO PLACE THE VIEWER WITHIN THE PHYSICAL EXPERIENCE OF THE PAINTING.”
