Art by son Joshua Barber
From an early age, Joshua Barber joined his father, John Barber, in the studio and on voyages around the Chesapeake to scout painting locations.
Joshua’s modernist style is far different from his father’s, however, his focus is whimsical modern icons and dreamy, nocturnal landscapes.
“Both realist and transcendentalist, Barber sees the natural world, but also reads the back stories that imbue it. Maybe that’s why his colors are often so saturated. Because life, after all, is saturated with its attendant hopes, joys, fears, disappointments and mysteries. Which is why we can’t just look at his work once; we have to keep looking – and walk away with something new every time.”
Joshua Barber’s work has been exhibited his work in gallery exhibits across the US and the UK. He has also been selected for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ auction for three consecutive years.
