A brand new artist to feature with The Rose Gallery. Barry Hilton's distinctive style of his dramatic landscapes combines two parts that work in harmony-the smooth skies combined with textural vibrant fields of colour, with his keen eye for light and shadow. The Sound of Silence features a stromy sky combined with fields of a rich red, where the light is just breaking through the storm clouds.

Barry was born in Manchester in 1941. The dramatic landscapes of Barry Hilton express emotion and atmosphere with the use of intense colours and bold textural contrasts. His smooth, finely painted skies contrast with the heavy impasto techniques of the land as it appears in his highly coloured foreground. Barry builds up each composition in layers to give a remarkable, almost ethereal feeling of depth and intensity and that connects with the emotions of the viewer. Effective juxtaposition of differing shades defines each scene to stunning effect, especially when the light falls on to the heavy layer of paint which in turn scatters the light in many directions. The work does not duplicate the actual colours of the landscape, but rather conveys the creative imagination of a genuine and artistic talent. Barry continues to develop his style and technique, and has become one of the UK's most enduringly successful artists. "I consider my current work of landscapes and seascapes to be deceptively minimal and hope that the more one looks and analyses the picture the more one will see."
