San Francisco artist Darren Waterston creates luminous paintings that suggest aqueous environments, biological forms, and fanciful motifs adapted from sources in Asian painting and decorative arts. At once whimsical and mysterious, Waterston’s paintings evoke the suspended atmosphere of dreams, where deeply symbolic imagery coexists alongside seemingly arbitrary occurrences.
