One of the things I love most about the ever-evolving online art world is the emergence of artist-owned and operated online galleries. Darger HQ, founded in November of 2012, is a perfect example. This month’s guest curator - artist and director of Darger HQ - Launa Bacon introduces her work and the concept behind her gallery:
Artist Launa Bacon ‘s work ranges from collage to video, sculpture, installation, and large-scale projections. Not content to simply produce her own art (as though that weren’t enough!), Launa also actively supports the work of other artists, through the online artists’ community Darger HQ, a new platform for presenting international emerging artists’ work to new collectors. Owned and operated by artists for artists, Darger HQ showcases both editioned and unique works by about 15 early to mid-career international artists on a simple and easy to use website, making buying contemporary art an enjoyable and stress-free experience. Darger HQ is an exciting new source to see some of the most interesting work being created today.
Watch Launa’s “1k” collection unfold here. Enjoy!
