Inspired Chaos


Solo Exhbit, Dec 8, 2014 – Thur, Jan 25, 2015


Through the use of digital mixed media, Daryl Thetford seeks to uncover the beauty that comes out of chaos and disorder. Instead of forcing the chaos to adhere to an existing sense of structure, the artist embraces it in order to discover new ideas of the world and society. Using photography to capture the essence of this chaos, Daryl Thetford collages a series of images (often using fifty or more for one piece) to portray and share his view of the world.

The Struggle to Evolve Before the End of Time, Solo Exhibit, 2014


We are bombarded with advertisements on billboards, cars, television, and even in the sky. News, e-mail, weather updates, images of war, social networking pages, and stories of loss, hunger, and natural and man-made disasters are delivered to our computers and phones night and day; their arrivals are announced with a beep or chime. Stories of hoarding and addictions—to food, spending, sex, money, and even other people—frighten and fascinate us. But because we are unable to take in the whole picture at once, we are forced to view the world in fragments, creating a sense of disarray and heightened anxiety and confusion. 

The nature of chaos inspires my work. Collage provides a means to reflect and express the tension between our fragmented struggle for understanding and simultaneously articulate the beauty that can emerge from disorder. My work challenges the existing structures we use to cope with disarray, and suggests that, through a studied and coherent reassembling of fragments, we can gain a more diverse and integrated view of the world and ourselves.______________________________________________________________
