Avian, a new series of works by Liam Barr, opened at ARTIS Gallery on Tuesday 5 April with great success. The exhibition will run until 25 April.
This exhibition sees Barr move toward a more contemporary image set, offering an alternative to the historical narrative works for which he is known. He has created a body of work cohesive in a central theme – stripped back in terms of colour palette, geographical location and other elements that have made up his folio to date. Barr has reached out to a spiritual connectedness – unrelated to religion – leaning more towards a DNA coding inherent in the forgotten strands of essential mankind.
