LONDON.- On 28 July 2015, the Saatchi Gallery opens Immaculate Confection: Works by Darrell Hawkins in the Prints & Originals Gallery.

Immaculate Confection showcases paintings by the British contemporary artist Darrell Hawkins. Many of the works have been newly created for this exhibition.

Hawkins is a chronicler of contemporary life. His works are meditations on the world about him and his memories of the past. The exhibited paintings encapsulate a world of colour, play, rhythm and abstraction in which the elements collide in a way that is simultaneously organised and chaotic.

“I want my work to emulate the fractious, absurd and seemingly random nature of life.”

“I find solace in repetition. This manifests itself in the repeat appearances of Sonic the Hedgehog and other symbols that are representative of different stages in my life. These are pathways I want to re-tread and re-visit. This repetition is also apparent in my more abstract works where I build static, scrambled, clouds of visual information through repetitive mark marking. The paintings attempt to restore some balance within the chaos and to build their own rhythm."

The resulting works are a hypnotic blend of fact, fiction and illusion.

The Artist
Darrell Hawkins was born in Chatham, Kent, UK, in 1986. He attended the Kent Institute of Art and Design and graduated from Brighton University of Art. The artist lives and works in London and Gravesend, Kent.
