The Balance of Contrast

Darren Cone 315 no 23  New Direction VIII 472 no 3

Bronze is both strong yet delicate - a duality that the casting process works with to allow the bronze to take shape. 

This duality is an aspect that I explore not only through form but also through colour. 

In recent pieces, I have brought together the warmth, energy and vibrancy of oranges with the clarity, calmness and depth of blues.

The colours are natural opposites that create balance from their polarities. Each colour becomes more intense in the presence of the other. 

The polarity of form, colour and energy is a continuing exploration within my work.
