Darcy Lauren Briks was born in Milford, CT and grew up in various suburbs throughout the country before settling down in Fairfield, CT for the remainder of her formative years. This set the tone for her desire and ability to explore various styles and mediums throughout her career. She later studied art and graphic design in a post-graduate program at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, then continued to explore different artistic mediums, including photography, acrylic painting and mixed media, throughout her twenties. Now, she mainly creates abstract acrylic paintings with a focus on color combinations and enjoys experimenting with new painting styles in each series. One of her latest series, Hutt Lagoon Pink Lake, features pinks, oranges, and emerald colors inspired by the aerial landscape views of a natural wonder on Western Australia’s coast. Her other new series, The Magna Series, makes abstractions of overarching global and personal issues using freeform shapes and marks.
Darcy relocated two years ago from Greenpoint Brooklyn, where she had lived for nearly seven years, to Ardsley, New York. Professionally, she is Founder and Creative Director of a boutique creative agency where she works on branding, print and web design projects. She will have her first solo show at Lucas Lucas in Williamsburg Brooklyn with an opening reception February 21, 2019. The show will feature the Hutt Lagoon Pink Lake and Magna series and will run for one month through the end of March. Contact the gallery for previews and details.
