Barry Shelton Artist Bio:

BARRY SHELTON My paintings continue as poetic maps and signposts of the human journey. Beginning with an energetic and spontaneous textural ground, energy lines or marks appear and fade, enliven and delineate. Symbols, metaphor, abstracted realism follow embodying, balancing and celebrating the pre-cerebral and the intellectual in a very material manner. Veins of subject matter in the natural world are mined and a series of work in acrylic and mixed media on canvas or panel is explored. Each Individual Tree exhibits a particular quality, presence, and energy. Every Open Vessel portrays an essence and potential. Sacred Geometry reveals an elemental mystery and more. Light on Water affirms even as it embraces the ephemeral. The shape, colour and vibration of light intrigues me. Born in Toronto, 1949, full time visual artist since 1979, my artistic foundation began in Ontario and continues in British Columbia since 1987. World travels initiate and nourish my life of art. The ancient and the contemporary both speak to me. Continuing journeys in the wide world of nature and the gardens, ocean and mountains surrounding my West Vancouver studio, infuse my work. Constantly I sense and see a silent language before thought, a mystical unifying inner reality of simplicity and oneness, light and dark, beauty. Shelton Art|Studios Gallery and the home that I share with my artist wife, Monica Shelton, welcomes lovers of art. www.barryshelton.com www.sheltonart.com www.monicashelton.com
