“Richly detailed and highly personal, exuding a sense of stillness, Daryl Austin’s realist paintings quietly, yet resoundingly articulate the world of the painter... Austin directs the viewer into the nucleus of the painter’s studio, selectively framing his pictures within a picture, as little is revealed and much concealed...”

(excerpt from “Daryl Austin” by Wendy Walker, 2004)
