PARADOX PORTRAITS 2014
' Darren Coffield's Paradox Portraits are a superb product of art and science at its most exciting. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing and in themselves, works of art, but they excite the mind with what can be perceived, in social psychology terms as a manipulation of perception.
My favourite is Einstein's portrait, still recognisable and yet clearly so creatively distorted within aesthetic parameters that even the great man himself would have spent time intrigued by Coffield's logic.
It is a pleasure to have the work in my The Art of Science collection as one of the few paintings included.' HBJ 2014
