THE ART OF BARRY CAWSTON
Barry Cawston is the recipient of numerous awards, including the President’s Award at the Royal West of England (RWA) Open Photography Exhibition. Cawston's work demonstrates that, in the hands of an artist of talent, photography can be a powerfully expressive medium which is able to create art of great beauty and transmutes the ordinary into the unexpected. Cawston’s images, whether landscape or cityscape, interior or figurative, display a fascination with shape, pattern, colour and texture and, coupled with metaphor and association, the poetry which these qualities can often suggest. Taken as a whole, his work seems to express an almost visceral response to the visual world.
