Barry McGlashan: The Glass Mountain

The world Barry McGlashan creates in his paintings ranges from the intimate to the monumental, not only in the variety of his subject but in his ability to capture on the largest or smallest canvas an interest with humans, with landscape and with a story. His knowledge of literature and art history informs his practice and he revels in producing scenes which beguile and intrigue in equal measure. Each painting is visualised as a stage set, perfectly orchestrated by a master auteur. McGlashan is insistent on the viewer playing their part and rather than giving away the whole plot we enter the narrative at a moment of the director’s choosing, invited to draw our own conclusions on an evolving story.
