2016, acrylic on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Turner Car­roll Gallery, 725 Canyon Road, 505-986-5027 Santa Fe-based painter John Barker’s por­traits cap­ture emo­tional and psy­cho­log­i­cal states and para­doxes in­her­ent in the vi­sion­ary Wil­liam Blake’s con­cep­tion of po­etic ge­nius, such as at­trac­tion and re­pul­sion, love and hate. Barker’s en­er­getic, ex­pres­sion­is­tic paint­ings cap­ture a sense of the con­tra­dic­tions of the psy­che and have a raw power to them. The ex­hi­bi­tion of his re­cent works, The Book of John, con­tin­ues through May.
