Darren Blackstone Foote

American, born 1978

Drawing from philosophy, science, art history, and nature, Darren Blackstone Foote makes mixed-media sculptures, and takes sculptural photographs, through which he explores the age-old questions about man’s place in the world and relationship to nature. As he describes: “I’m interested in finding points of re-connection not only to nature, but the natural mechanisms of life and death. I’m specifically interested in how we, as thinking, powerful agents contend with the world we’ve created.” Blackstone Foote works primarily with natural and elemental materials, including cowhide, glass, plaster, and, most importantly, wood, which is central to his work. Shaped and raw, his wooden logs, branches, planks, and forms evoke living forests and deforestation, creation and destruction, persistence and decay. Such opposing forces hang in fraught, fragile balance in all of Blackstone Foote’s work, as they do in life.
