Darrell Driver is a Utah based artist. His Expressionist paintings combine past and present, reality and fantasy. Portraits represent the majority of his works, and Native American women seem a favorite subject. Animals, including owls and dogs, just to name a few, also make interesting portraits. He treats them with the same deference as human subjects, and we analyze them as meaningful depictions of our modern culture. What inspires such an artist?
In a 2013 interview, Darrell Driver revealed that his interest in art began because of his lack of artistic merit” and because of his “admiration of those who’s art looked so strong.” He also indicated that, “I have two major hurdles to jump when I create art. The first is to impress my dear wife, and the other is to try to amaze my kids and show them that hard work can hopefully pay off. When I see people looking at an art piece for more than a few minutes, I feel invigorated to do more.”
