Based in: Melbourne
Contemporary artist Darren Munce creates works that are a compelling investigation into the visual language of painterly abstraction. Utilising a complex layering of colour and form, Munce seeks to find his own language within the vocabulary of the time-honored paint tradition. His ever-expanding practice is a place of industry, productivity, growth and decay; a source of jubilant victory and inevitable loss.
While his compositions evolve through a considered labour and profound attachment to process, works also demonstrate a true commitment to propagating new directions. Invention and abstraction occupy the painted space producing a vital history of additive and subtractive mark-making. Munce’s methods create a space where responses are triggered then refined and surfaces are fastidiously worked to exalt the minutiae.
