The work of Darren Peet is multi-layered and multi-faceted. A product of his age his practice has grown along side the growth of digital art. Foremost a painter his work has gradually, organically become mixed media.
Paintings inextricably entwined with photography and graphic art produce striking images. Form and colour are the immediate appeal but there is an element of structural beauty to his work, it betrays an interest in and influence from architecture, both man made and of the natural world.
The need to leave a legacy behind us is the driving force behind many works of man and these creators often leave something of the self invested in their work. Darren's work is no exception and traces of his response to life changing events can be found.
Darren counts among his influences; modern conceptual art, architecture and the work of the old masters. This confident accomplished artist speaks his own truth through his work and his work has a beguiling appeal.
