JAMES DARR received his bachelor’s of fine arts in sculpture from Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, Indiana and his master’s of fine arts in sculpture from the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. During the past 12 years James has spent his time teaching at the college level, both 3D Design and Sculpture courses, as well as maintaining an active work schedule as a metal fabricator. His work ranges from larger public commissions to smaller gallery works most of which revolve around ritualistic daily happenings resulting in monotony.
The processes of fabricating and realizing an idea, no matter its size or function, has always been exciting to me. From early childhood lamps to sculptures and furniture I make today, the constant has always been the joy I get from not only solving the problem creatively, but having the opportunity to create the problem.
