Christian J. Barrios: Past, Future & Beginning
Inlaid Wood and Mixed Media
Artist Reception October 4th 6 – 9pm (With Live Music)

“Every time I start working on a new piece of art experiment with precious exotic wood and different materials to form my work, it becomes a new challenge for me and it motivates and inspires me to create new pieces.” -Christian J. Barrios

Christian likes to focus on the importance of the visual art materials by learning about the types, the textures, where the materials came from, the history of this art and the material and the social implications of using these materials. Some wood is from the 1800s and that tree does not exist anymore, but it is still here in a different form. There is wood which came from Venezuela but why is it this color? It is this color because it came from a jungle a tropical place. Understanding the history, origin of the materials and how the origin affects its look and texture continues to intrigue Christian.  He works in the mediums of photography, painting, marquetry (inlaid wood) and paper mache (3D).  This show entitled Past, Future & Beginning brings together a variety of Christians works including inlaid wood and mixed media.
