Artist Statement //
To me, painting is all about color interaction, and drawing is about value interaction. In my paintings, I work with an overall majority of cool hues, but with a slight addition of warm color for contrast. The colors I choose are what makes or breaks my painting. I primarily work with a combination of violets, violet reds, blues and grays, but with yellow added for contrast. It’s all about the color. Since I have begun my journey with painting, I have been interested in the interaction and combination of color. My goal for this exhibit is to achieve perfect harmony in my painting, through the subtle use of color and the color transitions. -Darius Harris
Artist Bio //
Ever since I was a small kid, watching my mom paint in the kitchen and my brother draw comic book characters, has always been a source of inspiration. You could also say, that I never grew out of my enjoyment and appreciation of cartoons and illustration. Living the majority of my life in Mississippi forced me to find ways to entertain myself. From working with gum and construction paper, to cotton and tape, and now working in oil paint and graphite on paper, my life has been continuously tied to art. I originally made art as a hobby, but as it started to become a priority in my life, I decided to change my major from biology to visual art. Now here I am, working on my senior capstone in painting and drawing, and I am enjoying every minute of it.
