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).

I have also come to the conclusion that the square is a human invention, which makes it sympathetic to me. Because you don’t see it in nature. As we do not see squares in nature, I thought that it is man-made. But I have corrected myself. Because squares exist in salt crystals, our daily salt. We know this because we can see it in the microscope.
