In Fabric & Flesh, Thomas Darsney’s paintings reveal a palpable tension between the tactile sensuousness of fabric and the subdued brushstrokes of paint made flesh. United by this visual juxtaposition, the artist’s masterful compositions pay tribute and homage to various painting masters through the inclusion of art historical references. Darsney is highly invested in both the structural design and integrity of the work, as well as the viewer’s experience. Adhering to a classical model of ratio, synthesis, and proportion, Darsney uses orthogonal and perspective lines to lead the eye on a circumambulating path of the entire canvas.
