BARNFIELD: JULY9 (2019) - "Analogue Selfies."

Prior to the digital age, video resources were bulky & out of reach to a lot of the population. Cameras were loaded with film which had no instant playback - so it was a case of taking the picture & a while later the prints would be developed - often disappointing. Instant playback & the amount of photos that can be taken on a modern camera mean that we can take hundreds of images, switch to video mode & check within seconds for quality. These 9 works represent a much slower process: Barnfield painted himself painting - in the same way that artists have done for millenia. Self portraits could be called Analogue Selfies in today's parlance, so that's what this year's exhibition will be called.

Happy Birthday Fred.
