Artist’s Statement

Darlene Cole has been capturing a hazy, haunting world of poetry and wonder for over 20 years. The artist’s distinct oil painting techniques lend a water colour effect to her subjects without compromising rich colour values and velvety textures. Cole’s canvases—dreamy expanses inhabited by spirited figures—are studies of time and memory. These figures—both human and animal—play a pivotal role, evoking emotional responses in the viewer as Cole navigates between layers of reference and meaning.
