Darren Goins
Continuous Glissando
Jul 3 – Aug 2, 2014

Darren Goins makes brightly colored paintings and sculptures, using expressive lines and shapes that consider digital culture. He develops patterns in Microsoft Paint and incorporates this visual language into sculptural objects using synthetic materials such as neon, plastic, and laminate. His abstract acrylic paintings are screened by acrylic panels, as though gazing through a computer screen. Goins’ work draws from the aesthetics of computers, appropriating their dynamic energy into real-life objects.

Goins received his BA from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He has exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions, including Sonce Alexander Gallery (LA), Invisible Exports (NYC), Davidson College (NC), Small Black Door (Brooklyn), Artspace (NC) and Joie Lassiter Gallery (NC). He was an artist in residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC and had public art commissions from both the Charlotte Area Transit System and The New York City Department of Transportation. Born and raised in North Carolina, Goins currently lives and works in Joshua Tree, California.
