I stumbled on an exhibit by Scott Barber while taking a few days off in Galveston for our anniversary. Very keen abstract work, a lot of which had a very topographical look, was manipulated from photographs using PhotoShop into unrecognizable beautiful forms which then make their way onto the canvas (or aluminum or polyfiber, as the case may be). I found this nice review of a show Barber was in Artlies.
Barber’s works were the best thing in Galveston on this trip, and the rest of the trip was pretty good! Sadly, this was a posthumous show; Barber died in 2005 of complications following a bone marrow transplant.
Also, here is another page from Glasstire magazine about Scott Barber.
