Dan Barry has been drawn to creating mixed media, found image collaged drawings since he was a young person growing up in northern Wisconsin. His love of vintage visual media has grown and developed throughout his career. In “The Florist & Garden Miscellany”, Dan continues to combine the marks of his hand with vintage mixed media, both old and new, to explore themes that are deeply personal in ways that make them universal.
Dan Barry’s artwork reflects our difficult times in their exploration of loss, life and mortality, as well as our deep ongoing desire for deep human connection. His work invites us to reflect and embrace the place of love, loss and the passage of time in our own lives.
Dan Barry graduated from Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin majoring in Cultural Anthropology & Fine Arts. He had several solo exhibitions globally and has participated in numerous international exhibitions.
