Jonathan Barber

Artist Statement

Jonathan Barber, a contemporary artist from Edinburgh, Scotland creates atmospheric abstracted work based around light, darkness, shape, movement and presence.


After graduating from the School of Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art (2008) Jonathan has continued to make and exhibit work as well as teach Art and Design at Primary, Secondary and College level.


His recent work consists of large scale abstract landscapes on canvas and board alongside smaller more intricate studies on paper. His developed aesthetic is made up of dark weighty tones bringing depth and distance to the canvas. Accents of colour are skilfully used as compositional tools to entice the viewer to weave through layers and perspective.
