Darren Gilbert’s striking pen & ink artworks celebrate Australian fauna, beckoning viewers to stop and really “see” the fascinating and often overlooked characteristics of our natives. The amazing patterns of plumage & fur, soulful expressive eyes, the unique curve of a beak, the gnarly texture of a claw is juxtaposed with bold gestural black ink brush strokes.
Darren’s incredibly detailed artworks marry well with his stunning sculptural works created from used timbers & rust bittern objects – inspired by shapes found in the natural landscape; giant seed pods, stylised leaves and abstract bird forms. Contemporary outdoor wall-art featuring laser-cut designs, majestic engineered garden forms and all manner of statement pieces created from salvaged objects, weathered timbers & rustic metal.
