Below the Surface explores the vibrant relationships between form and its deconstruction. As compositional elements begin to combine, initial decisions affect the overall composition. Deconstruction of layers and colors from each piece emphasizes the idea that nothing is fixed. “This constant evolution of texture and color is a microcosm of how our universe operates. Every part is working with one another to create a harmonious union between tool, canvas and medium. This balance is beneficial because it highlights duality (good/bad) and the unexpected nature of life,” explains Daren. In a way, this artwork is a study of how an initial action or decision acts as a catalyst for what follows.
