WAM October 22-23 Darren Whalen
Emma Butler Gallery opens a show this afternoon of New Works by two young men - Dave Sheppard and Darren Whalen.
I visited the gallery yesterday and had a look at the work and while there took the opportunity to talk with one of the young artists, Darren Whalen.
Darren is a graduate of the Visual Arts program at Sir Wilfred Grenfell in Corner Brook and sites Alex Coleville and Lucian Freud among his influences. And when you have a gee at Darren’s Terry Sawchuck portrait, for instance, you can see the Freudian significance. The exhibit is full of faces.
