In his sculptures, Darrell makes use of recycled metals using semi-abstract shapes and forms, which suggests lines within space. The concept of fragments in time is central; the history of what once was and is no more. Chains are often found within the artist’s sculptures, linking past to present. The chains counterlever our bond between space and gravity.
Because Darrell’s work does not intend to reflect natural appearance, it is not, therefore, an escape from life, but may be a penetration into reality; an expression of the significance of life, a stimulation to greater effort in living.
“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.”
