Darren's Sentiment Piece
The Power of 3
Darrens Sentiment was an exciting process of life imitating ART. This is what Darren is all about. After creating the physical Art installation at the Gallery Darren then replaced the mannequin and chose the words that gave meaning to this time. As you connect with this piece you are connecting directly with the artist and all who hold a piece of this creation.
This unique hand printed A0 print is now in the process of being divided into
1000 pieces in the iconic jigsaw shape allowing friends, family and fellow art lovers to connect to his story.
Each piece is mounted on a 24-carat gold leaf base with a thread of gold running through it. This connects all the pieces together and to the artist and in turn all the artists in the Sentiment collection.
Framed in a black wooden box frame, signed and numbered ready to share and be collected.
