Craig Barber’s practice spans an array of fine art disciplines, but mainly focuses upon painting. In the past Barber used found images selected from an array of disparate locations to create paintings with an unhinged sense of time. More recent paintings have dispensed with source imagery with the aim of ‘finding’ the painting through working processes.
Barber has been a part of solo and group exhibitions at venues including Francis Kyle Gallery, London, MAC, Birmingham and Lanchester gallery, Coventry. He has performed at venues and events including the London Short Film Festival, London and The Public, West Bromwich. His paper, 'Pictorial Slippage', which considers temporality and painting, will be published in the forthcoming issue of the International Journal of Arts Theory and History. Barber is Senior Lecturer at Coventry University.
