What of memory?
How does it engage with a journey?
What of the moment now?
How does a painting grow now?
100 Paintings [GR11] is an installation of paintings that is a parallel journey to that of a 45 day walk across the Spanish Pyrenees.
100 can be seen as a scientific number, to survey a question, one not being enough to prove a point. Darren O’Brien’s paintings are not scientific but the quantity does survey the question of making paintings and the enduring nature of a memory of a journey.
Like a beating drum the works wrap around a long central construction made of weathered ply that could be navigated in a circular fashion the beginning and end being interchangeable. With a free flowing access to both the spontaneous and the journey the paintings often on paper, on canvas form constellations that collectively weave their own path.
