biography

PAUL BARNES
Paul Barnes delves into the ancient traditions of his Scottish homeland and incorporates it’s folklore and legend with his own experiences and an affinity with nature, to produce dreamlike paintings set in a timeless world.
Paul’s beautifully stylized anthropomorphic characters are metaphors for elements of the human condition and they weave gentle narratives infused with myth and magic. Forever fascinated with the past, Barnes paints with a soft and subtle colour palette on a textured support, which lends his work the time worn appearance of ancient relics. It is through his collection of masterful visual cues that Paul invites the viewer to revisit their childhood naivety and unlock the innocent imagination which accompanies it.
Paul currently lives and works in Aberdeenshire in the north east of Scotland. He has a strong international following and his art has been exhibited in preeminent New Contemporary Art galleries around the world.
