A visit from Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti

Cosey

Here’s myself with exhibition guests, the legendary Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti from Throbbing Gristle and so much more to this day – the inventors of industrial music, no less.

It’s not often you get to meet your inspirations. It’s even more rare to meet them at one of your own shows. It’s practically unheard of for your inspirations to buy one of your works. It’s otherworldly when they buy THREE of them!

Art Photography Now – An Exhibition Collected & Curated by Phil Barrington


[APN] – Art Photography Now – A Fine Art Photography Exhibition
This exciting and fascinating exhibition contains a variety of photographic art works made by young local people aged 13 – 19, as part of the Norfolk County Council Arts Award scheme, the results from a course which ran for 6 weeks over the summer of 2013 by myself.
The subject matters fit into a particular theme for each of the three rooms of the gallery, ‘Fear’, ‘Emotion’ and ‘My Life’; works by young people that are at times brave, heartbreaking, thought-provoking, insightful and inspiring.
This exhibition of modern art photography of all creative styles shocks, disturbs, challenges and enlightens you with the candid, raw and personal visions of young people exploring their lives and feelings through the use of any kind of camera in their possession, without rules, restrain, nor any real regard for convention or tradition.
Some photographic artworks in the gallery exhibition explore real-world horrors, including a haunting black and white photographic work taken of Auschwitzby young local artist Rachel McGlone (see below photograph of the artist with the work, a stunning abstract macro exploration of fear by the very talented Heidi White, amongst many other works by very creative young artists.  PB.

Phil Barrington Artwork; “The Lovers”

“Love * Union * Passion * Sexuality * Pleasure * Humanism * Desire * Individual values * Physical attraction * Connection”

In a nutshell; my ‘The Lovers’ tarot card-inspired work is a canvas board-based collage of found items.

Specifically; 18 years ago I acquired a large private collection of photographs (polaroids etc.) shot and processed in the 1960s-1970s that were clearly sent between lovers in a sexual fantasy context, often with accompanying hand-written notes of lust on the reverse side of the home-made prints.

It is a small pasted & matte-varnished selection of these original photographs, together with other elements; ink stamp, dried drops of blood (my own), hand-written annotations, and more, that comprise my tarot card.


“The Lovers” [detail].

Preparatory trimmings for “The Lovers” mixed media collage on canvas. The work features only one facsimile (a blow-up of “The Lovers” tarot card itself) – the rest of the media is original, including actual vintage amateur photographs, a splice of film, and cut-up pages from a 1971 sex manual for couples.


“The Lovers” – with example of frame.
12″X 16″. Mixed media collage on canvas. Original Edition of 1.

The work displayed here at the Brick Lane Gallery details a long process personally undertaken by myself for each image. From initial concept to location scouting, from the procurement of suitable models to the actual shoot and subsequent printing process, to distressing each photograph with a range of fluids, paints and scratching, a typical framed gallery image can take up to a year to complete, if not longer.”
