Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 13 Apr 2006 - 23 Apr 2006

Barrioquinto’s Personages presents a motley cast of characters in painting, an assortment of people who have at one time or another been close to the artist, refracted through the prism of his brooding introspection. Usually a term describing persons of importance or distinction, the ‘personages’ who loom large in Barrioquinto’s consciousness are the people who “affect my everyday life, people that inspire me and people who bore me. Everyday I meet all sorts of people. When they touch me in some way, I paint them, and that moves me.”  The portraits assume a spectrum of representations from moody realism to fractured fragmentations, encompassing acerbic visual satires, visages of haughty remoteness and ruddy countenances dipped in the theatrical rouge of the artist’s palette.  We glimpse haunting instances of terrifying beauty in his emotional distillation of friends, ex-girlfriends, companions and acquaintances as we peer through the painter’s glass, darkly.
