Darren Nixon’s interest lies in how we find and extract meaning from the imagery we encounter every day. Developed from a range of found sources his paintings look at how such images interact with one another, bleeding together in a manner which is frustrating yet strangely magical. The resultant fluidity of meaning is something which can be both worrying and exciting all at once. Nixon’s work is often filled with narrative yet resilient to any attempts to extract a clear story or message. His interest lies as much in what modern painting cannot say as in what it can. Often cropped to the point of illegibility each piece remains charged with an intensity which is difficult to define. read full statement
