D’Arcy Sallion Artwork

Following on from November when local artists from Mannamead Art Group displayed their works inspired by the James Ward collection, we have another local artist displaying his artwork at the museum.

D'arcyD’Arcy Sallion belongs to Hazelwood Art Group, an art group of all abilities that meets in Hoddesdon once a week. Four of D’Arcy’s landscapes will be displayed in the museum café from the 29th January to the 15th February.

D’Arcy graduated from Middlesex University, London, in 1994, having studied graphic design and animation. He then went on to start his own design studio in Soho, London.

He started off painting landscapes as a hobby before he knew it was his calling and he was urged to continue. At first, his paintings were traditional and realistic before he had a clear vision of this unique style he uses today. It is astonishing to view this extreme textual art in person to see the depth and detail of the artwork.

D’Arcy’s texture is very unique as it’s created with mixed media. Using this texture technique allows for many layers of colour within colour. Seeing it in person you can really see the layers of paint and how the texture enhances the landscape.
