Barnabas Bardon reminds us of Greek mythology, between reason and urge, and also invites us to reflect upon our concepts of humanity, beauty, nature, and neutrality. Transparency becomes consistent through the look of the hermaphrodite beings that inhabit his paintings. Soft, weak layers, with small, black, strong, groundbreaking spaces. Each being portrayed next to an animal, an object, or a mountainous landscape. Barnabas Bardon’s artwork captivates through its underlying messages, through the intention it supposes, the imagination it insights, and the memories of Greek mythology evoked.
