Watercolours by international award winning artist Darcy Polny
There is a story to be seen in everything created by nature and man that takes the viewer on a personal journey. Empty perfume bottles with glass birds that were lifted by a gentle hand from their perch. A fragrance released to the air that signaled an exotic person had just entered or left the room. Weary storm windows that once protected families from the elements or provided an avenue for a late night rendezvous. Complex flowing tapestries over glass reflect glimpses of busy lives. Female figures console each other in this time, or perhaps a mother and daughter reunion. Light passes through antique glass vases spilling out long colorful shadows that give them a rich new life. My paintings are more than still lifes, they say to the viewer... “There’s still life.” You just have to see things through new eyes.
The work I am doing now is the culmination of everything that I have done and everything that has made me who I am. Every illustration for clients and everything that my wife and I have done or collected in our lives all play a roll in what fuels my creative voice.
