Marc Barrett

Artist Statement:

I like to make pictures of old buildings, fish camps, bridges, signs, art deco structures, dinners, and private residences. Some of my influences have included photo-realism. My recent subject matter includes fishing boats, piers, jetties and other marine structures. Having started out working in the graphic art field. I like to create bold designs and show a strong sense of space. Starting from the top and working down. My pictures are created by layering thin washes of acrylic paint over a charcoal drawing. Gradually building up the surfaces with pure acrylic paint until I’m finished.
