Artist Statement:

Darrell Roberts is a Chicago based artist represented by Thomas McCormick Gallery, Chicago. His artwork is full of intense colors and textures as he draws his influences from the lakefront path of Lake Michigan, the Chicago skyline and construction sites in the city.  Darrell Roberts is a painter’s painter. He is interested in the physical act of painting. Immersed in a life time of art history, Darrell responds, views and reacts to the mammoth wall size paintings of the 1950′s. By creating thick visceral paintings, Darrell squeezes those paintings down to small scale paintings which still have the same amount of power to capture the viewers attention in the same amount of wall space while having a Contemporary painting feel.
