BARRY HORNER.

MEiITS A COLLECTION INTENDED TO BE FOR MY OWN USE, TO SEE WHAT I HAVE DONE AND WHERE I AM GOING. I WAS NOT EXPECTING OTHER PEOPLE TO LOOK AT THIS WEBSITE. YES, THE PICTURES SHOULD REALLY GIVE THE MEASUREMENTS, PERHAPS TITLES AND DATES-- --------THEY ARE NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER,------- SO THERE IS A MIXTURE WHICH MUST BE HARD FOR OTHER S TO FOLLOW. SOME PAINTINGS ARE SOLD, SOME I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SELL. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME. STUDIO PICTURES GIVE SOME SCALE, THE SIZE OF SOME OF THE BIGGER PAINTINGS ETC.
UNLESS YOUR PAINTING IS VERY REPRESENTATIONAL ---AS IN A PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGE-- -IT IS HARD TO DEFINE EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO ACHIEVE ANYWAY. MY PAINTINGS MUST SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES... TRANSFORMATIONAL IMAGES BASED ON SOME REALITY BUT WITH ALTERED INTERPRETATIONS OF BOTH LINE AND COLOUR GIVE A TOTAL FREEDOM OF INTERPRETATION WHICH IN MY LITTLE WORLD CAN TAKE ME ANYWHERE. EXPERIENCE HELPS BUT ACHIEVING WHAT IS ONLY A LOOSLY DEFINED CONCEPT ANYWAY IS OFTEN DIFFICULT,
i DO NOT DREAM UP EXPLANATIONS OF MY WORK....ITS JUST MYSELF, THINKING PICTURES.
i LIVE BETWEEN SPAIN AND ENGLAND, SPENDING THE SUMMER MONTHS LIVING ON MY BOAT IN NORWICH; OR IN HARROGATE NEAR MY BELOVED YORKSHIRE DALES, (SKIPTON WAS MY HOME TOWN .) TIME SPENT WITH MY CAMERA ON MY WIDER TRAVELS GIVE ME THE IMAGES THAT I LOVE TO DEVELOP ,BUT MEMORY IS MY MAIN DRIVER.
MY STUDENT YEARS WERE AT BRADFORD COLLEGE OF ART AND THE UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD. I TAUGHT ART AT A SCHOOL FOR DEAF CHILDREN FOR FIVE YEARS THEN MOVED TO LECTURE AT NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION FOR TWO YEARS. FIVE YEARS LECTURING ON THE B.ED COURSE AT NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE POLYTECHNIC FOLLOWED, TEACHING PAINTING AND DRAWING, WITH REGULAR EXHIBITIONS OF MY WORK. A MOVE TO SAINT JOHN VOCATIONAL SCHOOL IN NEW BRUNSWICK CANADA CAME NEXT. I STAYED THERE FOR FOUR YEARS. A RETURN TO ENGLAND LECTURING AT JACOB KRAMER COLLEGE AND LEEDS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN, WHERE I STAYED FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS......TEACHING ON VARIOUS COURSES BUT EVENTUALLY AS HEAD OF B.A. (HONS.) INTERIOR DESIGN, VALIDATED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS. MY FINAL WORK THERE WAS AS INTERNATIONAL STUDENT OFFICER, INTERVIEWING NON EUROPEAN APPLICANTS FOR ALL OUR DEGREE COURSES AT EDUCATION FAIRS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY -- SO LOTS OF TRAVEL !
ONE DAY I WILL ORGANISE MY WEBSITE WITH SIZES AND DATES ETC.THANKYOU FOR YOUR INTEREST.A NICE SUPRISE I ADD THIS INFORMATION ONLY BECAUSE OVER 27,000 PEOPLE HAVE LOOKED AT THE SITE
