Oxford American online: “The Only Stair That Doesn’t Creak: The Southern Open,” (exhibition review mentions grad student Mark Barry)
“Tuscaloosa, Alabama, artist M R Barry came up with three abstract paintings on raw canvas that also operate as post-minimalist sculpture. One of Barry’s paintings sags ever so slightly off the wall, one seems to be severed with the bottom half creating a puddle of canvas on the floor, and yet another is pinned ‘face’ to the wall with only a portion of this ‘face’ falling into view.” (dead link: http://www.oxfordamerican.org/articles/2012/jun/19/only-stair-doesnt-creak-southern-open/)

These include religion, nationalism, science, sports and war.’Painting is an ideal expression for this as the painted image is representative of entrenched traditions,’ he says in a museum news release, ‘yet (it) retains a sense of vitality in the fluid world of contemporary art. Perhaps of greatest importance is the expectation of eventual truth inherent in the image, an expectation that remains a powerful force in the mind of the audience.'” –Thomas B.
