Darby Shaw

I am inspired by the expressive, emotional flow of natural shapes and textures embedded in everyday life. My aim is to convey messages and feelings without screaming them to the viewer. Being passive with a message can open a piece to interpretation and deeply inspire people to see not only art but everyday life a little differently. I love hearing the different perspectives in reaction to art. In a subtler, less explicit work, the viewer is free to find their own truth in a piece, drawing on individual and differing views and life experiences. I see this discovery playing out on the faces of viewers when I show them my work. Faces are filled with memory and importance, even if you don't recognize it you can have another interpretation of how it affects the world of the artist.
