Tate Local:The Moods of Brian Barry


Brian Barry lives on the Ashmole Estate and attends the Wednesday art classes at the Ashmole Tenants Hall, which are funded by the Metropolitan Housing Trust.

The works in this exhibition in the library’s gallery area were done at home and at the art class.

In the artist’s words “They are not ‘inspired’ but are the product of ‘mood’ with no calculation involved. Of course, some, if not all, show the influence of others, but hopefully I am moving into a world where originality will enter.”
