Barnaby Barford’s “The Tree” (2019) in the exhibition “MORE, MORE, MORE”
Barnaby Barford is obsessed with words and with The Apple, and uses them to explore fundamental questions driving human nature. During Ernest’s heel healing journey, he has looked to artists like Barnaby for inspiration. Barnaby’s work is informed by mythology, art history and religious symbolism. He sees the Apple as a symbol of immortality, death and beauty, innocence and experience, sin and redemption. Barnaby Barford’s latest body of work on The Apple is now on view at London's David Gill Gallery. That makes Barnaby Barford our artist of the week.
