Mediterranean: Works on Paper' is a collection of etchings by renowned artist Joan Barbara. Bold, yet sensitive, the collection draws on nature and its emotional revelations.
Barbara's 'Mediterranean' is a representation of his personal world. Exploring landscapes and natural forms, the artist's own mood and sentiment is ably reflected, invoking an emotional affiliation with the viewer. Each artwork signifies a meditation and devotion to the process of etching and with the land. With components of severe lines, dense patches of black and selective use of colour, one would usually envisage a muted, aggressive and desolate image. Yet instead, Barbara portrays an understanding of form, disposition and retreat with elegance.
99 Mount Street Gallery are delighted to present such an accomplished and respected artist. Born in 1927, Barcelona, Barbara has a career spanning nearly over seven decades. Barbara has exhibited in France, Belgium, Germany, and Italy and in his native homeland Spain, where he currently resides.
