Darren Waterston: Vistas
Greg Kucera Gallery, Seattle, WA - Apr 4 – Jun 1
Former BC resident and longtime Equinox Gallery artist Darren Waterston has had subsequent sensational success through a mixture of promise, shrewd talent and good timing. Filthy Lucre (2015), his idea to alter James McNeill Whistler’s Peacock Room at the Smithsonian’s Freer Sackler Gallery caught international attention for its audacity in “violating” an American icon’s Gilded Age commission and its use as a backdrop/decor for an elaborate government party. The new Vista paintings are his take on 16th-century Dutch landscapes.
