The abstract paintings and drawings of Michael Barringer are steeped in contemplation. The Georgia artist creates works as part of a series, often inspired by art history, archaeology, anthropology, or literature. Barringer uses conte crayons, charcoal, and washes of acrylic paint to create his canvases which are ethereal yet layered with complexity.
"The visual artist acts a conduit. I channel sensations, emotions, and ideas, producing a unique voice which lives in the made object." -- Michael Barringer
Originally from North Carolina, Michael Barringer currently lives and works outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
