Michael Barringer Art

American, b. 1965

American abstract artist Michael Barringer creates highly crafted and detailed, lyrical abstract paintings rooted in metaphysical introspection, expansive life experiences, and meditative mind spaces. His work is layered and nuanced, and rewards prolonged looking. Barringer lives and works just outside of Atlanta, GA. Barringer earned his BA in English from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and went on to study art at Carrboro Arts Center, Carrboro, North Carolina; Atlanta College of Art, Atlanta, Georgia; and Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia. Barringer has exhibited his work extensively throughout the Southeastern United States. His work is included in many prominent collections, including that of Walt Disney, Georgia Institute of Technology, Ritz Carlton Hotel, IBM Corporation, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Warner/Fidelity investments, among many others. Barringer strictly paints during the day, using the natural light in his studio. Although the initial inspiration for a painting might come from a fleeting experience with music, nature, or a memory, Barringer methodically crafts his compositions over an extended period of time. Putting a premium on craftsmanship, he builds his surfaces up carefully by layering a variety of mediums, including acrylics, modeling paste, charcoal, graphite and pastels, stacking areas of pure color atop gestural brush marks and geometric forms. The elements come together almost like a quilt, yet the contrasts between the translucent and opaque layers creates an illusion of endless space, inviting viewers to contemplate the accumulation of time, evoking memories, hidden histories, and future feelings.
