Not Everything is Blue

Darren Cone 315 no 21Once upon a time, everything was blue or green.

Patination of bronze is a unique art form. Achieving specific colours takes time and perfection. Blue and green are the colours most easily achieved in patinating bronze - blue also happens to be a favourite colour of mine.

The mottled sand colours that I have created are, I believe, unique and vary from very pale to quite dark, just like sand is different on every beach. I often use them in conjunction with blue for a striking effect.

Other colours can be achieved by colour washing or painting to create new dimensions to my work, the lightness of colour being in stark contrast to their surprisingly heavy sand cast form.

My studio series are available from selected galleries across the UK or contact me directly to find out about available work or to know where work can be seen and touched.
