The cascades of colours on Dara’s current paintings suggest that she is in the midst of creating her very own theory of colours. In this theory form (that is, appearance) plays as much a role as content (that is, colour). What is also being taken into account are changes in states of matter and the potential relationships between colours. Sometimes contrasting colours form a symbiosis effortlessly while other times colours of different textures appear irreconcilably side by side. Elsewhere concentrations of intense colour seem to float on paper as they are surrounded by areas of washed out colours above and beneath them.
