I stumbled on an exhibit by Scott Barber while taking a few days off in Galveston for our anniversary. Very keen abstract work, a lot of which had a very topographical look, was manipulated from photographs using PhotoShop into unrecognizable beautiful forms which then make their way onto the canvas (or aluminum or polyfiber, as the case may be). I found this nice review of a show Barber was in Artlies.

Barber’s works were the best thing in Galveston on this trip, and the rest of the trip was pretty good!  Sadly, this was a posthumous show; Barber died in 2005 of complications following a bone marrow transplant. (you can read his resume here).

As an artist, it is central to be unsatisfied! This isn’t greed, though it be appetite.

  • I like both of these a lot! They are my favorites really. They are little jewel-like landscapes to me with floating elements – plants, trees, animals, birds that are moving by in the wind. I often hear music when I look paintings and the music I hear with these two is Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five.”
