Description

"What a fine thing it is to have this full and final show of Barry's wrerterly productivity laid out expansively, matched by a photo-essay that shows Barry doing what he always did most: working, in his own self-made situ. Laid out, too, in the long thin lines he loved to trace, on paper/ canvas, in clay, in the landscape. Curling across the page in those transitional curves that were in fact his strongest formal signature; and the thing that sent the radius of his work out, in the end, to some kind of infinity." - David Craig

Author description

Barry Brickell wove many different strands into the rope of his life, clay, wine, engineering, fruitcake, paint, conservation, words. Some strands were of seriously heavy calibre, many were just plain funny, and some were tucked away and often seen only privately. He was a man with serious messages which he despatched to the world wrapped in a wide variety of beguiling packages. - Peter Lange
