Item description for Darren Waterston: Representing The Invisible by Darren Waterston, David Pagel & Jacquelynn Baas...
Darren Waterston's somber but sexy paintings layer curvy, organic forms over strong colors in alluring riffs on the language of landscape. As abstract works with a visceral physicality, they evoke a sense of place without geographic reference. Their night-sky blues, mist grays and blood reds are dotted with disorienting arrays of starry pinpoints, bubbles, ripples and rays. Perhaps because his work could offer a window to anywhere--deep space, your backyard, or your synapses--it works at any scale. His most recent mural project, Was and Is Not and Is to Come, for the San Jose Contemporary Art Center, was his largest to date, expanding over 150 feet and taking two weeks to execute. Waterston has exhibited internationally, is included in permanent collections at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the de Young Museum, and has been covered in ArtNews, Art in America, GQ,, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times.

Astonishing Feb 8, 2008
Whatever I might write about this collection of Waterston's work will pale in comparison to its incredibly astonishing quality. Merely the deep core feeling that seems to exude from every painting would be enough to fill one's mind with a certain dark joy and wonder, but along with the expertise demonstrated by his use of many techniques; his creation of mysterious, complex and gentle undulating forms; his blending of precision and anarchy; and his absolute mastery of depth and color... the resulting whole is exalted to stratospheric heights. It is both entropic and autotrophic. As a designer, I've found this work very inspirational, and as a quite poorly painter, I find it utterly mind-boggling. I might also add that the quality of the book printing and presentation is very high. I strongly recommended this book.
