About Bob Barron

Barron works with mixed media, notably discarded box packaging and old roof slate as well as with oil on canvas and paper. His work tends towards a minimalist, contemplative style and, if it is about anything, he thinks it is about the passage of time made corporeal through certain images, surfaces and textures.

In the oil on canvas works he applies a flat surface with bold, clean lines as opposed to the scored, eroded, textured surfaces of the card and slate pieces.

The oil on paper work began when he accidentally spilt a small pot of liquid paint over some A4 sheets of paper and in attempting to wipe it off, was attracted by the colour and tones that were left. He continued to experiment further using a wide range of colours to produce his source material.

Many works are abstract using geometric shapes of squares, triangles and circles, the latter occurring most frequently as the circle, both as a form and as an idea, is at the heart of our relationship to the world and has shaped the development of civilisations from the most ancient of days.

In other works, he may incorporate Graeco-Roman fragments or references to the cosmos - suns, moons or constellations or to the natural world, a butterfly or a leaf perhaps. He is also interested in leaving traces of human kind: domestic objects such as spoons or pottery and imprints of hands and feet – all aspects of the depth of human life and experience.

The majority of his working life as a full-time artist has been spent in his native North-East of England apart from periods in Australia, Cornwall and London. He has recently relocated and now works from his studio in Southampton.

He has shown widely in solo and mixed exhibitions throughout the country and has works in gallery, corporate and private collections in the UK and abroad. He is also represented in the ArtUK National Collection and in various publications.
