Darryl Hughto (b.1943)

“Abstract or from life, it is all painting. The biggest difference in a painting is not subject or theorem, rather, the painter who paints it.
My purpose is to find new ways to surprise myself. My job as a painter is to find beauty and awe in heretofore unexpected ways and means. Sharing awe is what art is about.” – Darryl Hughto 2017
