Original Art

“For the last decade or so I have been working on the general theme of Charms and Chimera; those things that charm and those that disturb. In these paintings I play with an idiosyncratic repertoire of iconography which has been built up over the last fifty years as well as being mindful of the aesthetic and painterly demands involved in the construction of such images.

“In spite of being overawed by the great works of the Romantic period and the surrealist movement, I put my pictures within their orbit.

“I was born in Czechoslovakia and raised in Bavaria before coming to England to be part of quite an unusual family – this has left its mark and unavoidably influences my visual output.”

– Bohuslav Barlow
