“Detroit Sunset”, 2021, 6″ x 6″, stained glass, dichroic glass
Detroit has been a source of inspiration for Darcel for nearly 20 years. Using glass and found objects she finds in and around the city, she builds images of Detroit that parallel the current growth of the city. There is a striking similarity in the city’s transformation and the approach to her process. Her work has been widely collected and was recognized as ‘Best in Show’ at the Anton Art Center’s 2020 Michigan Fine Art Competition juried by DIA Director Salvador Salort-Pons.
