Thomas Darnell

Texas born Thomas Darnell left his regular day job in 1992 after the loss of his wife to cancer two years prior. He moved to Paris to start doing what he had always wanted to do: paint full time and produce meaningful work. With the support of his new wife Nicole and their two kids, Darnell has 'pulled off' his dream. 

Darnell explains his work as "inspired by a need to find order and meaning in this beautiful disorder we call life... The illusion of spatial dimension and light is achieved through a technique involving multiple layers of transparent oil paint and alkyd resin. Starting with blurry images I refine detail and contrast with each pass and often erase some of the image with a thin wash of paint and go back to refining the details until the right balance is achieved."
