Barry McCarthy Studio Tour

Elora-based artist Barry McCarthy takes us on a tour of his studio where we see his memorable watercolours and in-process oil paintings. In McCarthy's own words: "To paint a subject, you must know it, understand it and live it before you can say something about it. I must be there to feel it, so that I can bring these thoughts and visions back to the studio."

Barry McCarthy first painted and exhibited the farm country surrounding Fergus, Ontario with its Grand River and majestic waterfalls. Gradually, searching for expanded views and coastlines, a family visit to Atlantic Canada led to summer images of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. McCarthy's love of travel always leads him to seek new imagery and ideas for his compositions.

His work transforms the common object, ordinary person, or familiar landscape. We recognize the subject but, more than viewing it, we experience the moment in time that impels the viewer's mind to thoughts of human history. Whatever his subject matter, Barry McCarthy attempts to reveal its spirit, its inner self, and its mysticism.
