Marc Barker

Artist Statement

My education was in mathematics, limnology and art. I revere nature and question my place within it, the Mystery, prismatic sunsets and sensuous memories exploring, surveying and photographing caves with their invented light, veiled touch, solitude, and deafening silence. I transform all these experiences into psychologically contemplative subjects including shadow figures, asterisms, and more recently cloudscapes. I paint these grisaille oil drawings on highly textured canvas, paper and panel in contemporary techniques with vintage results.
