There Are Places I Remember

2 July – 20 July

  1. Originally from Wales, Hilary Barry moved from London to Suffolk in 2016. She completed her MA in Fine Art at Middlesex University in 2006 and has been a full-time practising painter ever since, working in oil. She has exhibited widely and taken part in many Selected Group Shows throughout the UK, and had several Solo Exhibitions in London.

  2. Paintings often take months, as she works with layers of glazes and experiments with different textured surfaces. Detail is jettisoned in favour of contemplation of the inner life and meaning of the Suffolk landscape.

  3. She comments: “I don’t attempt to reproduce what I see, but instead to engage the viewer and provoke an emotional response to the world around me. Relying on my visual memory and imagination I work quickly, often turning errors into advantages. Paintings often take months, as I work with layers of glazes and experiment with different textured surfaces. I find the process of painting exciting and constantly challenging: there’s no better way to spend time.

The selection of works below are some of the beautiful pictures in the ‘There Are Places I Remember’ exhibition by Hilary Barry and available to purchase either via our online shop (click the image you want below – this will incur postage costs) or alternatively directly from the Gallery.
