Wilford Barrington

November 8, 2010

I’m really mesmerized by the work of Toronto based artist Wilford Barrington. He says of his work found in a mini-interview via Fecal Face.
I draw people from direct observation. The conversation I have with them during the portrait sitting along with the different expressions and emotions they convey inform how the portraits look. I depict an array of attitudes that will give the viewer insight as to the true nature of the sitter thereby creating an image that holds significance beyond their name and identity alone. They are essentially about how we get to ‘know’ someone, how we connect and what we honestly see when we look at a person. People are fluid creatures that do not sit still and their faces act as a window into a constantly changing stew of thoughts and emotions. What I see in a few hours can say so much about a person’s entire life.

You can see much more of his work by visiting his Blogspot here…Wilford Barrington.
