"My approach to painting has always been a fairly visceral one. I want to capture the mood of a story rather than the details, so I try to pare them down to a bare framework.
– Colin Barclay
A third generation Hudson Valley artist, New Luminist landscape painter Colin Barclay depicts scenes of the Mid Hudson region and the Downeast coast of Maine. Widely collected, his landscapes, although traditional in method, resonate with a contemporary vision of the natural world.
"Simply composed, yet richly layered with scumbled opaque colors and thin veils of sheer tint, Barclay’s radiant landscapes seem to channel the emotive power of nature."
