Barry McGlashan | Between the Dream and Waking

A catalogue to accompany Barry McGlashan's November 2021 exhibition, Between the Dream and Waking.

In locating his exhibition between dream and consciousness, Barry McGlashan has added layers and filters to his imagined world. In previous bodies of work a super-reality has located his obsessions in the sharp-focus end of the range of subconscious experience. Here the mists of romantic symbolism we know from Bocklin and Whistler are deployed: elusive imagery, like half-remembered fragments of a dream. In several small, enigmatic pictures his palette seems to derive from a chemical process, the image persisting through an acidic wash or half bleached by the sun. Once more McGlashan has demonstrated his imagination and originality, impossible to pigeon-hole, and reminded us of the painterly qualities he exploits to realise his visions.
