Contemporary American Luminist, Timothy Barr will be showing new works in a solo exhibition at the Somerville Manning Gallery from September 16 – October 15, 2022. Barr creates fine oil paintings finding inspiration from his explorations of specific landscapes. His love and understanding of nature is strikingly represented in each of his paintings. He paints with a heightened sense of the relationship between color and light, infusing natural images with a serene and meditative radiance. He uses many thin transparent layers of paints usually put down wet over dry, depending on the effect he’s after. By changing the color of each layer, Barr achieves complex color and lighting effects within the images. Timothy Barr attended Pennsylvania Governors School for the Arts and the Tyler School of Fine Art at Temple University. He graduated with a degree in Fine Arts (BFA) from Tyler School in Philadelphia.
