Artist Statement:

“I’m attracted to woodworking and painting because both require unique problem solving. I really enjoy painting because it is free of the rules of physics that are required in woodworking. It allows me to be truly free with my style and not rigid. Humans, animals, inanimate objects, random shapes and the space between are used to make my paintings. I use bright colors depicting these objects in action and at rest, in predicaments that may not be so graceful or comfortable looking. I try to catch these moments, and allow the viewer to come away with their own version of what is going on or what is about to happen… this is what I find very amusing.

“I usually title my paintings and I encourage the viewer to come up with their own title or caption, as we all relate to these every day moments but with our own interpretation. Maybe it just creates an emotion, like or dislike.”

Elijah Barrett: New Work

Oct 16 2020 – Ongoing

Spellerberg Projects, Masur Gallery
119 W San Antonio St, Lockhart TX

Elijah Barrett lives and works in Austin, TX. He earned a BA in art from Yale University and is currently completing an MFA in photography at the University of Hartford–Hartford Art School. His work has been presented in solo exhibitions at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Central Texas College, and Spellerberg Projects.

Artist’s Statement:

“My second show at Spellerberg Projects presents five color pictures that reflect my sense of idealism and pessimism in the face of an uncertain feature. A young man holding a blank booklet as if reading aloud to the creek before him, a rainbow with an unfinished anarchist A sprayed over it, a young woman caressing a telephone somewhere between receiving and placing a phone call, the tailgate of a luxury electric vehicle bearing the rainbow-themed license plate of Hawaii, and another young woman recording music in a studio. The pictures wonder what kind of world we built, what we could not let go, what kind of future is left, and whether it is too late to change.”
